A MAN'S best friend is a best friend for eternity.

And this heart-breaking story is all the proof you need!

A faithful pooch waited on the doorstep of a hospital for four months after his owner had been stabbed to death in the state of Sao Paulo, Brazil.

According to local media, the dog chased the ambulance as it rushed his owner to Santa Casa de Novo Horizonte medical center.

However, the victim died of their wounds and left the dog, which never tried to enter the hospital, patiently waiting for their return.

Even when the dog had been picked up by a rescue organization, he escaped and wandered back to the hospital to continue his vigil, according to local resident Cristine Sardella who shared the dog's story on Facebook.

Hospital staff gave the dog food and water with one reportedly deciding to adopt the dog, but only when it finally made the painful decision to give up on its long wait.
