Nothing compares to the bond that forms between a pet owner and their family member!
Nothing is more traumatic for a pet owner than when their animal goes missing and they fear they won’t ever see them again. But when you are at last reunited with them, it is the happiest feeling in the world.
It was especially happy for one man, whose dramatic, heartwarming reunion with his two dogs ended up on TV.
Miami-Dade Animal Services and Ocean Drive Magazine collaborated on a picture shoot. To encourage pet adoption, models stood beside stray animals looking for homes.
Two Siberian huskies served as the models for the dogs. But as the photographer was snapping away, a man charged in and halted the session.
What he said shocked everyone: “That’s my dog, man! That’s my dog!”
They were his two pet dogs, Ragnar and Kloud, who had gone missing a few days before, according to the man, Sandy Hernandez.
He spent a long weekend looking and posting posters before receiving a call from a man who had located the huskies.
“Yesterday I was posting flyers, I was posting fliers all over the neighborhood,” he told CBS Miami. “And the guy found it tell me he brought them here yesterday at 1 p.m. so I came running and saw them.”
The moment the dogs were being photographed, he just so happened to arrive. He hurried to the dogs without even parking his car because he was so excited. The huskies were glad to see him, too.
The touching reunion was documented on film. The staff members who handled pet adoption and the crew cheered when the man was reunited with his missing pups and consoled him.
Although the story has a happy ending, Sandy says he won’t risk losing his pets again and will get them microchipped as soon as possible so they can recognize him as the owner.
Just love it when something comes to a good end. Nothing compares to the bond that forms between a pet owner and their family member.
