A man named Mike and his loving dog Jack were best of friends. And then, out of the blue, Jack went missing. Mike, of course, did all he could to track his furry pal down and get him back home, but three years passed by and Jack was nowhere to be found.
Neither the everyday search, nor the flyers this worried owner kept putting around the neighborhood led to a positive outcome.
“Ever since I lost him, I haven’t been the same really,” Mike said. “We did everything together, like I’d even bring him to work half the time, and any time I’d go fishing, he was there. We just did everything together. He was there no matter what I was doing.”
One day, Mike got a call from an animal hospital that was around eight hours away from his home. The person on the other end of the phone wanted to know if he was speaking to Mike and asked whether he has ever owned a dog named Jack.
Mike was fast to give a positive answer to both the questions and then heard the words he was waiting to hear for so long, that Jack was safe and sound. The dog was in their hospital and Mike couldn’t wait to get there and see if that canine was indeed his long lost friend.
In order to be sure, he told the person he was speaking to that one of Jack’s nails was completely black and he had a bit of brown in one of the eyes. The dog they had in possession shared those characteristics, and all the doubts faded away in an instant.
No one really knew what Jack was doing for three years and how he managed to survive on his own for so long. Luckily, he was healthy.
The moment the two long lost friends saw each other again was beyond touching, especially because Jack knew right away that it was Mike who was waiting for him the moment he laid eyes on him. He expressed his happiness by wagging his tail and giving Mike a bunch of licks and kisses. Well, he did expect some belly rubs in return.
Exciting howling filled the place and everyone who got to witness the reunion was glad for the happy ending these two got.
We honestly hope that every dog who got lost would eventually find their way home one day.
