The staff at the Suhan Taikang Hospital has continued to feed the dog, The Quint reported.
After the lockdown in Wuhan was lifted, the hospital supermarket was opened up on April 13. The supermarket's caretaker, Wu Cuifen, returned to work and that is when he noticed Xiao Bao. In fact, he is the one who named the dog Xiao Bao, and eventually brought him into the stop and has been taking care of him ever since.
Cuifen revealed that deliberate attempts to leave the dog elsewhere have failed as he found his way to the hospital every time.
