The pet, Boncuk, which means bead, followed the ambulance that transported her owner, Cemal Senturk, to hospital in the Black Sea city of Trabzon, the private news agency DHA reported.
Senturk’s daughter, Aynur Egeli, said she would take Boncuk home but the dog would run back to the hospital.
A hospital security guard, Muhammet Akdeniz, told DHA: “She comes every day around 9 a.m. and waits until nightfall. She doesn’t go in.
“When the door opens she pokes her head inside.”
Boncuk was finally reunited with Senturk when he was pushed outside in a wheelchair. “She’s very used to me. And I miss her too, constantly,” he told DHA.
Senturk was discharged from the hospital and returned home with Boncuk.
