Buddy, the 35-pound beagle mix, rode on the side step of the ambulance as his owner, 85-year-old JR Nicholson, was rushed to the hospital in Mason County, Texas. A driver flagged down the ambulance after noticing the pup. EMTs brought him inside the vehicle and to the emergency room with his owner.
EMT Tanner Brown said he’s never experienced something like this before.
“It was kind of weird,” Brown told the San Angelo Standard Times. “I guess the dog wanted to be with his owner.”
