A loyal dog in China has reportedly waited for the owner to return home for three years after the owner left him without saying goodbye.
The pet, nicknamed Hei Zi, is said to have waited day and night in a residential complex where it lived in Xi’an city with its owner.
The Plott Hound was from a Korean expat who returned to South Korea in 2017 and left the dog behind, a neighbor told reporters.

The neighbor, named Wang Huili, urged the public to help Hei Zi after city officials repeatedly threatened to catch the dog and consider him a stray dog.
She also said that some residents, who were afraid of dogs, also complained to authorities about Hei Zi. They urged officials to remove the animal from the neighborhood.
However, Wang emphasized that many people on the estate had shown sympathy for Hei Zi and treated it as their own pet.
“We would give meat or other food we bought to Hei Zi instead of our own dogs,” Wang said Pear Video.
“Hei Zi has become a link between our neighbors, who otherwise wouldn’t talk much to each other,” she added.

A girl said to Pear, “This dog is very loyal. All these years he has been waiting for his owner on this estate [the owner] left.
‘[It] never thought of leaving this estate or finding a new owner. I hope the owner comes back one day to get him. ‘
The locals have built a small tent in a piece of bamboo on the estate where Hei Zi can rest. They would also leave food outside the tent.
They said that Hei Zi would appear in front of a statue in the middle of the estate at 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. each afternoon, expecting the owner to return.
Residents described the dog as “smart,” “sensitive,” and “gentle.”
“It never argues with other dogs or chases children,” Wang said.
Animal lovers took turns taking care of the dog.

Last year they worked together and donated 5,000 yuan (£ 568) to Hei Zi so that the vet could remove parasites from the dog.
They now hope to arrange a physical check-up for Hei Zi at the vet and find a new owner. That way, Hei Zi can have a pet permit and lead a carefree life.
A neighbor, known by her surname Xie, told the local Hua Shang Daily that some of the neighbors had agreed to complete all necessary paperwork for Hei Zi “as long as it can lead a peaceful life on our estate.”
