We come across a lot of good dogs in our time, and Zander, the 7-year-old white husky above, is certainly deserving of some extra treats and socks to gnaw on: after his owner was hospitalized with a skin condition, a heartbroken Zander left his Bay Shore home and travelled more than two miles to the Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center to be by his side. “He’s gotten out in the past, but never gone to that location or anywhere near [the hospital],” said owner John Dolan.

Zander, a shelter dog, likely had to go under the Robert Moses Parkway and across a four-lane road to get there. A hospital employee found the dog on the street outside of building where Dolan was being treated, and called the number on his tag—Dolan's number. “It’s not nonsense that he was at the hospital,” Dolan, who is now back at home with Zander, told ABC News. “He was moping around for the days I was already at the hospital, sitting in my seat and rolled up and depressed. My wife said he had water in his eyes and looked like he was really sad.” He added: “It’s a cool story and uplifting. Who knows how or why it happened.”
