Earlier this week, healthcare worker Cris Mamprim and her colleagues at the Hospital Regional Alto Vale in Brazil witnessed something truly remarkable. In fact, it was a scene they will not forget in a hurry as it showed love in the purest form possible.
On Sunday at around 3 am, a homeless man named César entered the hospital to receive treatment and medication for an ongoing health problem he’s been having.
César usually attends another facility in town so Cris Mamprim and the other staffers at the hospital asked him for his backstory to get an idea of his condition. As they started speaking to him, they soon realized that César was not alone.
The homeless man had a lack of personal belongings. But César didn’t need material possessions when he had friendships keeping him going.
Cris Mamprim looked towards the entrance of the hospital. They noticed a group of very loyal canine companions standing by the doors.
The pups looked concerned as they eagerly awaited the safe return of their best friend, César. Cris soon learned that the man had taken it upon himself to look after these stray dogs. Without them, he would be completely alone.
César admitted that he often skips meals to make sure that he can feed the dogs in his company.
“They are all well taken care of and chubby. Seeing them like that, waiting at the door, only shows how much they are cared for and loved.”
The pups laid down on the ground by the hospital entrance as they waited for their human buddy to get the treatment he needed. They knew it wouldn’t be long until he was back on his feet.
The hospital staff brought the dogs inside and fed them while César got his medication. When they gave food to César, they noticed he had a few bites then split the rest with his dogs.
Believe me, he ate some and saved a bit to give the dogs later.
