They say that a dog is a man's best friend -- and that saying rang true for one patient of a hospital in Trabzon, northeastern Turkey, whose loyal pet waited patiently outside the entrance for six days until he was discharged.

(CNN)They say a dog is a man's best friend -- and that was definitely the case for one patient of a hospital in northeastern Turkey, whose loyal pet waited by the entrance for six days until he was discharged.

When Cemal Senturk was transferred by ambulance to Medical Park Hospital in Trabzon on January 14, his dog, Boncuk, escaped from their apartment and followed him to the facility, where she waited patiently each day.

But after Boncuk was brought back home, he managed to escape again -- and returned to the hospital each day, Murat Ercan, the hospital's international patient center director, told CNN.

The hospital said Senturk's apartment was nearby, and that the family were not sure how the dog kept escaping.

"His dog 'Boncuk' has followed him to the hospital gate and refused to leave for six days until her owner was discharged," Ercan said in a statement.

"Even though the family [took] Boncuk back home she managed to escape every day to wait at the hospital gate. "

"Cemal Senturk has been with Boncuk for nine years and he also stated that he missed her a lot during his stay at the hospital," he said.
