Barney and his family are relieved. The man and his dog had a moving reunion in a shelter 5 years after the disappearance of the latter. She had probably been stolen, before being discovered by the police while wandering the streets.
A dog has been returned to her family who had been looking for her for 5 long years, reported WKYT Thursday, May 12.
The animal in question is a female Pitbull by the name of ginger. His masters, who live Beloit in the state of Wisconsin, had not heard from the animal since 2017. They believe that it had been stolen from them.
They had never stopped looking for her, but they had known only disappointment and false hope. ginger remained desperately untraceable.
While continuing to hope for its return, its owner Barney saw his family grow. Their child grew up and another was born. They also adopted other dogs.
The situation changed on 1er last May, when the police Beloit shared a social media post about a stray dog. The police had posted his photo, sitting in the back seat of the police vehicle, and were appealing for witnesses to try to find the owners.
