So happy that he finally found Sam…!
Such a heartwarming story. He waited a long time for him. Don’t [lo.se] him again.
Glad he’s home with his original owner.
In 2016, Michael Joy experienced every dog-owner’s [wo.rst nig,htmare]. His three beloved dogs got loose and went [mi.ss.ing].
Two of the dogs came back, but Sam the 4-month-old Lab cross was still nowhere to be found. Michael checked all the local shelters and searched everywhere for Sam, but had no luck.
Michael and his family eventually ended up moving to Kentucky, but he never gave up hope that Sam was out there somewhere. He made regular trips back to their previous home in Georgia, hoping that Sam might still turn up there.
Almost five years passed and Michael still hadn’t been able to find Sam.
But then one day, out of nowhere, Michael received a call from City Dogs Cleveland.
The shelter had given Sam a medical exam, and in the process they scanned him and found his microchip. They were then able to trace him back to the Joy family.
Michael drove eight hours to Ohio that same day, hoping that Sam would still remember him. Both Michael and Sam had changed a lot over those years.
Michael share: As we get up there and I’m waiting for them to pull Sam out, you can just see the anticipation in my face. I was like a kid on Christmas.
Sam was just as excited as Michael was! He couldn’t stop wagging his tail and jumping all over his dad.
So happy you got reunited, never gave up and you both will live in happiness!
Grateful for your blessing of being reunited with your handsome pet.
Bless the both of you
This was just wonderful to read…!
