A streetwise dog has won over millions of hearts online as a bus driver shared the moment he found it sitting on his bus in Santiago, Chile on Sunday.

Bus driver Cristhian Lizama Fuentes told Reuters over the phone that around 11:00 am a dog hopped on his bus after a man and he thought they came together after forty minutes, when he got to the final stop, some passengers told him the dog was still there. And that's when he decided to film the brown dog resting.

Lizama said after he filmed the video, he hopped off to buy some breakfast for him and the dog but when he came back, the dog was already gone. Asking around, he found out other bus drivers had also encountered the pup and that it has regular stops where it hops on.

The video has been widely shared on social media, with one version viewed more than four million times.
