He found his dog after 200 days of relentless searching: their first cuddle on meeting again is touching
If you have a dog at home or are simply passionate about these extraordinary four-legged friends, you know that if something happened to them would be a heartbreaking event for the owners. Think of the pain, apprehension and suffering of an owner who loses their faithful four-legged friend, but not because they pass away, because for one reason or another, they run away and get lost, and can't be found again. A situation which was experienced by the two protagonists of this moving story ...

In April 2020, the Washington County Animal Shelter received a call: a stray dog named Blue had shown up at a stranger's home, looking for a safe place to sleep and eat; this sweet mixed-breed had spent days wandering aimlessly, looking for someone who would take him to heart.
Eventually, the volunteers from the shelter took charge of Blue, but he had to wait months in the kennel to find a person to adopt him. This was because, with the arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic, the shelter was closed to the public, except for appointments.
Precisely for this reason the shelter decided to publish a short video of Blue playing with a ball on their Facebook profile, to try to convince someone to adopt him. Fortunately, fate would have it that among the comments on the post there was also that of its desperate owner: "That's my dog!"
The man had lost Blue in the state of Tennessee, but then, after months of relentless searching, he had had to move to Texas for work reasons. He would never have thought of finding him by chance, like this: 200 days had passed since his disappearance, and the man had almost given up hope...
So, the owner traveled 2000 kilometers with his car to reach the shelter in Washington, showed some photos of Blue to convince the volunteers that the dog was really his and then there was a truly moving meeting between the two: Blue immediately recognized his master, and the two hugged like two old friends!
Here is the touching video shared by the shelter on Facebook:
We are so happy that the dog and his owner have reunited after so long; it was fate that the two would meet again, wasn't it?
