Many of us have, unfortunately, experienced the loss of a pet. No, we’re not talking about a pet growing old and passing over rainbow bridge but rather getting out and not being able to find their way back to us. This happens every single day all over the country, and it breaks our hearts when it is our pet.
We’ve all been there when we think our dog or cat is missing, and then we find them sound asleep somewhere and breathe a huge sigh of relief; that is not what happened for the family of a dog named Gunnar, though. Gunnar is a dog that got out of his house and was exploring and couldn’t find his way back.
Gunnar’s family was heartbroken, but for months they kept up the search to find him. More than twenty months later, the Pittsburgh Animal Care and Control found a frightened dog and brought him to Animal Rescue League Shelter and Wildlife Center. There it was discovered that the dog had a microchip.
Gunnar’s family was immediately notified, and they rushed to go see him and to bring him back home finally. Watch the touching reunion in the video below. There is nothing better than a happy ending.
