Stray Dog Waits for Woman at her Hotel for Months

A German woman adopted a stray dog in Argentina after it kept coming back to her hotel to see her.

Earlier this year, flight attendant Olivia Sievers was in Buenos Aires for work when she met a stray dog

After offering the dog - which she named Rubio - a bit of food and affection, it set up camp outside her hotel.

"He always walked with me and I tried to change my way because I didn’t [want him to] follow me to the hotel, but it was not possible. He always came back and followed me,” she told Argentinian publication Noticiero Trece.

"He was really happy that somebody gave him attention. This dog really wants a friend."

Despite Olivia heading home to Germany, she returned to the same hotel several months later in July and Rubio was still nearby.

She tried to have him adopted, but Rubio (who clearly only had eyes for Olivia!) ran away from his new family.

It was then Olivia decided she had to take the dog home with her.

She and Rubio now live happily together in Germany.
