Luiz is a homeless man. He lives on the streets of Cianorte City in Paraná, Brazil, and he has been homeless for 20 years. Luiz has been diagnosed with psychiatric problems, but he refuses medical help. He lives on the streets alone, but he is never lonely. He has many friends who accompany him, and some of his friends are a dog family who follow Luiz everywhere he goes.
One night, Luiz suffered a stroke and had to be rushed to the hospital. The dogs chased the ambulance, and once Luiz was taken inside, six dogs waited outside the Santa Casa Hospital.
The dogs could be heard crying and howling from the entrance. After a while, they laid on the ground, refusing to leave.
It was a touching scene for those at the hospital. The dogs patiently waited for Luiz, staying there for hours.
After getting treated, Luiz left through a different door and didn’t see the dogs. He was brought to his brother’s house after getting discharged.
However, the dogs were still waiting for him, so one of the volunteers reunited Luiz with the dogs. The dogs were so happy to see Luiz, and it was such a heartwarming moment for everyone.
