Olivia Sievers, a German flight attendant, travels to Argentina a lot for work. She had no idea when she stopped to play with a stray dog in Buenos Aires one day that she was making a friend for life. Day in and day out during her trip, this same dog waited for her outside her hotel.
Upon each return trip, she’d find him waiting at the same hotel door. After 6 months of running into the dog she’d nicknamed Rubio, she tried to get him placed with a local rescue organization. Against all odds, Rubio snuck out of custody and was waiting for Olivia at her hotel by her next visit.
She knew she had to act. Olivia hatched a plan to get Rubio home to Germany, where he could live out his days in safety and peace with the person he so clearly had chosen. He’s now made it there! See the photo and video evidence below.
