When stray dog Rubio first set eyes on German flight attendant Olivia Sievers he decided he would do whatever it took to make her his new owner.
Ms Sievers had shown the neglected dog kindness when she first met him in Buenos Aires over six months ago.
Rubio waited outside Ms Sievers' hotel with his big puppy dog eyes every night.
"I tried to change my way as I didn't want him to follow me to the hotel but it was not possible he always followed me so I tried [to wait] one hour but he always watched me and followed me," she told Noticiero Trece.
Every time she came back to Buenos Aires, Rubio was there waiting for her.
She eventually arranged for him to be re-homed. But he ran away and returned to the hotel to wait for her outside the sliding doors.
Falling in love with the dog and his persistence, Ms Sievers eventually decided to bring him home to Germany and on Friday he set off around the world.
