Istanbul (AFP) – A loyal dog spent days waiting outside a hospital in northern Turkey as its sick owner was receiving treatment.
The pet, punkuk, which means love, was followed by the ambulance that took its owner, Jamal Centurk, to a hospital in the Black Sea city. Trabzon The private news agency DHA reported on Wednesday that it made daily visits to the facility.
Centurk’s daughter, Aynur Egeli, said she would take Buncock home, but the dog frequently ran away and returned to the hospital.
Hospital security guard Mohamed Akdeniz told the Dubai Health Authority: “She comes every day around 9 am and waits for nightfall. She does not enter.”
He said, “When the door opens, I put her head inside.”
On Wednesday, Boncuk is finally reunited with Senturk when he is pushed out in a wheelchair for a short meeting with his dog. “She’s very used to me. I also miss her constantly.”
Centurk was discharged from hospital later on Wednesday and returned home with Buncock.
