japanese-akita-inu-dog-breedA DOG in Spain has proved that pooches really are man’s best friend.

Maya – an Akita-Inu breed – refused to be dragged away from the hospital doors where her owner was recovering.

She had been parked outside the doors of Elda hospital near Alicante for almost a week, as her 22-year-old owner Sandra Iniesta recovered from an operation for appendicitis.

Sandra said: “She is just doing what she does at home.

“Whenever I go inside some place or another, she waits for me at the door.”

Her father Andres Iniesta – not the footballer – added: “She’s a fully paid-up member of the family.

“I think she knows what is happening and she is showing that she can be patient.”
