Rescue Dog Runs Away to Visit Human in Hospital (Video)

Do you know anyone who doubts a rescue dog’s love and devotion? If so, this is the story you should send them.

Zander is a rescue dog, who was adopted from a shelter five years ago and nursed back to health by his new family, the Dolans. He has been “like a son” to them ever since. Last week, his human dad, John Dolan, was hospitalized for a skin condition.

Zander was inconsolable and depressed with his human gone, even “crying.” Then, he took it upon himself to go find his dad—walking over two miles from his Bay Shore, New York home to the hospital where John was staying. Even though he had never been to the hospital before, he managed to find his way there safely, likely by following John’s scent.

Watch their touching story in the video above.

The love and loyalty our beloved dog companions gives us is priceless. I only wish those Asian countries could see what we see in these fabulous animals and not see them as food. This story should be plastered on all Asian TV screens!!!!
