Earlier this year a miniature Schnauzer escaped her family’s home, only to show up at the same hospital as Nancy Franck, her owner. Nancy’s husband Dale, was grief stricken when he realized Sissy, one of his 2 beloved Schnauzers had gone missing. He looked everywhere for the dog. He was relieved when he got a call several hours later that someone found his dog. He was equally surprised when he realized it was a security guard at the same hospital that his wife was a patient at.

Incredibly, the canine traveled 20 blocks and made it inside of the hospital, but could not figure out much beyond that.

In 2012, a 7-year-old, 70 pound SamoyedHusky mix named Zander, was found outside of the same hospital that his owner was staying in. John Dolan, got a phone call one morning on his cell phone. He was shocked when the person at the other end told him he was standing outside of the same hospital he was a patient in, and had his dog. The dog seemed sad and had been moping around his house before deciding to do something about it. Zander, made an arduous 2-mile hike to the hospital that included crossing a nature reserve, stream and busy 4 lane highway.

3. The Loyalty Of A Mutt

In Goiania, Brazil, following an epileptic seizure, a homeless man’s dog chased the ambulance that carried him away to the hospital.

Finally, the compassionate crew, realizing the dog would give up his life before being separated from his owner, pulled over and offered a ride. Once at the hospital, the dog would not leave the owners side.

A Teacup Great Dane followed his owner to the emergency room after a drunk driver crashed into his home injuring his master and 2 others. The dog is believed to have escaped out of the opening created by the crash. He was spotted near the emergency room days later, where he probably had been since the accident. Jeffrey Groat had not stopped asking about his dog since the accident and was reunited with his faithful canine Burke, a few days later.
