Every day, Bokshil sits at the entrance of an apartment near the guardhouse, watching the residents go by. She is always present at the entrance, hoping that her wish will be granted one day.
According to the residents who stay nearby, Bokshil has been a regular presence at the apartment’s entrance for the past ten years. She appears to be waiting for her owner to pick her up, but the owner has yet to arrive.
Its daily routine includes quietly waiting at the entrance and chasing after passersby who she may have misidentified as her owner.
According to an SBS interview with a woman who feeds the dog every day, Bokshil was abandoned by her owner before they moved out of the apartment 10 years ago.
“I heard the owner left it behind while moving. [The owner] Probably lacked the resources to raise a dog,” the lady told SBS TV.
The owner may have abandoned Bokshil right at the apartment’s entrance. Despite this, the dog waits for her owner with bated breath that one day she will return.
Fortunately, the neighborhood’s generous residents always offer her food and water, which they place in a bowl at the apartment’s entrance.
Even they try to move her to a safer place, Bokshil reluctant to move and intend to stay at the entrance. When night falls, the dog quickly walks to the dog house provided by the residents.
There, she rests and spends the night, waiting the next day and repeating the same routine.
Luckily, some of those who are concerned with her safety and well-being took her to the hospital for a check-up. Bokshil was later diagnosed with a senile cataract, which makes it impossible for her to recognize people from a distance.
It certainly breaks the hearts of many people that Bokshil continues to wait for her owner despite her eyesight getting worse.
We sincerely hope that Bokshil will be able to get reunited with her owner one day.
