An animal shelter in Ukraine took in a big dog with blue eyes who looked pretty rough from life on the streets. He was emaciated and his body covered in a mangy coat. Volunteers wanted nothing more than to find the sweet boy a forever home once healthy, but little did they know he already had one with someone who was really missing him.
The shelter workers posted photos of the dog on the internet to seek out potential adopters, and he surprisingly garnered a lot of interest! Within just a few hours, the post was shared hundreds of times around the world.
And because of that, a woman took notice and contacted the shelter saying she’d had her dog stolen from her back in 2017. She saw the post and was amazed at how much it looked like her old pup. A meeting was arranged to confirm the possibility, and it was something to behold:
The dog (named Lord) had been waiting for this day for so long. He’s now back where he belongs, with a loving owner who can’t wait to make up for lost time.
“Tears of joy in the morning,” the shelter said of the reunion, calling it a “miracle.”
“We thank everyone who shared our post. Thanks to you that the dog’s life was saved, and peace returned to his owner’s soul!”
