Apparently, the dogs were able to stay while he recovered. While it isn’t known how long he will be in the hospital, or exactly what his injuries are, a photo posted by a hospital worker shows the man sitting in a wheelchair the next day, with his dogs by his side, and the caption: “Example of loyalty. The patients of the day.”
