For a homeless hound living in the capital of Argentina, the absence of a foreign woman who took the time to feed him and play with him just once was enough for him to never forget her.

Noticiero Trece reported that a German woman finally gave in and adopted a stray dog who just wouldn’t stop following her. Olivia Sievers, a flight attendant, encountered the homeless dog on her usual work route in Buenos Aires.

She told Noticiero Trece, “I tried to change my way as I didn’t want him to follow me to the hotel. But, it was not possible. He always followed me, so I tried [to wait] one hour but he always watched me and followed me.”

After stopping to feed and play with the homeless pup one time, he completely committed himself to her — proving that for some dogs, fidelity knows no bounds. She said, “I met him in January or February this year when I was in Buenos Aires. I was walking around very early in the morning, we played and I had some dog food.”

The loyal hound, whom Sievers nicknamed “Rubio,” would sit patiently outside her Buenos Aires hotel, apparently waiting for her to come back to him. Rubio waited for Sievers for six months, stubbornly roughing it on the streets in the same spot.

So, Sievers followed her heart and took Rubio back to Germany with her, giving him a proper home, place to stay, and a human to love.

Judging from Sievers' Facebook photos, Rubio is more than happy with his new life in Germany.
