A homeless man in Brazil, Lauri da Costa, had an emotional reunion with his dog who spent 8 days in the hospital car park waiting for his owner.

The dog, named Seco, accompanied Lauri to hospital after the man was attacked in the street with a rock.

Lauri believed that he would only spend a few hours in hospital to treat his injuries and left Seco in the car park.

However, Lauri’s stay turned out to be longer than expected when doctors found melanoma on his face and needed to operate immediately.

Seco refused to leave without his owner, and patiently waited in the car park over 8 days with hospital staff bringing the loyal dog food and water.

The two were finally reunited a week after Lauri’s surgery. Lauri is still recovering and it will be a while before he is fully discharged from hospital.

Seco continues to wait patiently for his owner.
