Sadly, the dog's long wait was in vain. Just a few days after being admitted, his dying owner passed away even as his vigil continued.
The dog's incredible loyalty, and incredible loss, wasn't lost on those who worked at the hospital. According to the facility's director, they've since arranged for him to stay with a foster until they can find him a permanent home:
"Many people want to adopt him, many people came to me to want to take the dog, I received many calls. Even a doctor of ours wanted to adopt."
Here's footage of the dog, taken on the third day of his vigil.
