Long-distance relationships rarely work. It’s hard enough to maintain a regular relationship, but with distance keeping two people apart, it’s easy to fall out of love. But there are also those that have persevered and patiently waited. Just like this one dog in Argentina, who has been rewarded with a forever family.
Right here waiting
Olivia Sievers is a flight attendant that regularly works on flights from Germany to Argentina. Due to the great distance, the flight crew would stay for a night for their flight back home the next day. On one of her stays, she met a stray dog outside their hotel and they became friends. She gave the dog some food and even played with him for a while. The dog was delighted with the attention he got and followed Olivia to her hotel.
What she didn’t know is that was the start of a lifetime of friendship.
The kind German said that she tried to lose the dog at first. She didn’t want him to follow her to the hotel as she knew that she would be leaving soon. But no matter just how much she tried to lose him, even trying to change her way, the dog would always find her.
Soon enough, Olivia was on her way back home. But when she came back, the dog, which she eventually named Rubio, was there in the front of the hotel again. The scenario went the same for the next couple of months. Every time she came back in town, Rubio would be right there waiting.
There was even a point where Olivia tried looking for help for Rubio. A local organization found a family for the dog, but he later escaped. He would come back to the hotel and wait for Olivia.
Sensing that the dog had mand his mind, the flight attendant decided to adopt him. She filled out the paperwork and got him all the medical requirements. And after a few months, Rubio was on his way to Germany. And this time, it was Olivia waiting for him at the airport.
