Street vendor Jackson Oliveira, who plies his trade outside the hospital, said the dog appeared at the site two weeks ago following the ambulance that carried her owner after he was hit by a car in an accident. She waited for him to return since then, taking shelter under a bench, on the outside of the facility.

“She received care from hospital staff and people who live here in the street too. They gave her food and water and also put a cloth on cardboard for her to stay warm,” he told G1 ES.

According to the hospital, a woman who takes care of animals at a shelter took the dog on Monday. The name and address of the shelter was not disclosed as the woman wanted to remain anonymous.
