An incredibly loyal dog was filmed clinging to the back of an ambulance as his owner was transported to hospital.

The dog owner had been walking her pet when he fell ill in the city of Uruguaiana, in Brazil.

Emergency services were called to the scene and the man was placed into the back of an ambulance to be transported to hospital.

Dressed in a little red jumper, the faithful pooch was captured sitting on the bumper of the ambulance in a bid to be as close to his stricken owner as possible.

Th dog reportedly then waited outside the hospital entrance as his owner was treated.

Mr Bahi told The Dodo : "I was passing in my car when I saw an ambulance stopped on the other side of the road.

"The love this dog has for her owner is something very special.

"A faithful love."

Many social media users and those who spotted the dog at the hospital were overwhelmed by the dog's adorable loyalty.

Local animal rescuer Maria Lúcia Muniz, who lives near the hospital, said she saw the lonely pooch and offered to take it in for the night while her owner recovered.

However, the dog did not have to wait long before its owner was discharged from hospital and the pair were reunited.

Maria Muniz said: "It was very emotional.

"But thank God the owner was only hospitalised for 45 minuutes. His family arrived to take him and his dog home."
