This tragic story is going viral.  At the Bucaramanga Airport in Colombia this dog was apparently left behind by it's owner.   People tried to feed the dog but said over a four week period she ate less and less and finally stopped eating all together.   

People traveling through the airport said it would walk up to people sniffing them hoping to find the missing owner.  

Alejandro Sotomonte Nino, a vet from the Colombian Animal Protection Foundation, said: ‘The hypothesis we have is that a traveler abandoned it. ‘Apparently, during the first month that the dog was at the airport, it was going through the halls looking for someone, possibly the owner.

Eventually the dog became so weak, it died.
