In a bittersweet tale of loss and loyalty, a small dog named Xiao Bao (little treasure) in Chinese, waited for 3 months for his owner to come back, not knowing that he had died of Covid-19.

Xiao Bao has broken the internet with many people feeling sorry for the little canine, at the same time lauding him for his loyalty.

Xiao Bao arrived at at Wuhan Taikang Hospital in Central China’s Hubei Province, with his elderly owner during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic in Wuhan.

Sadly his owner died just 5 days later, after he got admitted.

Xiao Bao’s owner was among the 3,869 killed by the Covid-19 pandemic in Wuhan.

Xiao Bao waited in the hospital lobby for 3 months , oblivious to his owner’s demise and hoping he would come back and reclaim him so they could go back home together.

However is was for naught.

Xiao Bao was fed by the hospital stuff during his 3 months virgil.

After Wuhan relaxed it’s lockdown on April 13,Xiao Bao was taken care of by a shopkeeper, Wu Cuifen, according to reports.

“They told me Xiao Bao’s owner, a pensioner, was admitted with the coronavirus. Then he passed away, but Xiao Bao didn’t know and just stayed in the hospital looking for him.

“He never left the hospital. It was incredibly touching, and so loyal. I grew familiar with the dog and later brought him into the shop,” he added.

He said Xiao Bao is such a sweet dog, everyday when he opened the shop, he would be there, waiting for him and he would see him off at the end of the day.

Xiao Bao’s picture and story was shared on social media with many lauding him and empathizing with him.

Staff said Xiao Bao refused to leave. Even when they deliberately dropped him off somewhere far away, he would make his way back to Taikang Hospital and patiently wait for his owner.” said one tweep.

The hospital started getting complaints in mid-May about Xiao Bao roaming the corridors.

The staff contacted the Wuhan Small Animal Protection Association, which has now taken the dog into their shelter.
