For more than two weeks, Hatem Abuharbid’s dog waited for his owner to come home. Every day, the neighbors would see him sitting near the doorstep or lingering at the front gates of the Houston apartment complex, eagerly searching for Abuharbid’s car.
What the devoted dog didn’t know was that his owner wasn’t coming home. Abuharbid, 54, was killed in an armed robbery earlier this month.
According to KTRK, residents at the apartment complex left food and water for Abuharbid’s dog, but the pooch shunned human contact.
“You could just tell that he was a lost dog,” neighbor Cassandra Eubanks told KTRK. “He would follow the cars and when he would realize that it was not his owner’s car, he would just stand there and look helpless.”
