Losing a beloved pet dog is always heart-wrenching, but it’s important to hold on to hope. Sometimes, dogs can unexpectedly turn up months or even years after going missing. So don’t give up! Keep looking and keep believing that your furry friend will find their way back to you.
One family experienced an extraordinary event when their elderly canine was reunited with them after three years of separation. The dog, named Binky or Mr. B, who was already 18 years old, was found by a Good Samaritan wandering on the streets and was later taken in by Dorchester Paws, an animal refuge in South Carolina.
Binky was not in good shape. His nails were too long, his teeth were decayed, he was very thin, his fur was tangled, and he had fleas all over his body. A shelter rescued him and posted about it on Facebook. The shelter staff took care of Binky, shaving his matted fur, giving him a check-up, and providing him with life-saving medical treatment. During the cleanup process, they found a microchip and decided to scan it to find his owner. To their surprise, Binky had been missing for three whole years!
Dorchester Paws expressed deep sorrow in their inability to locate Binky when he went missing. The shelter had been eagerly waiting to hear news of his whereabouts and hoped to scan him once found. After three long years, the much-loved pet was thankfully reunited with his family thanks to the help of a kind-hearted volunteer who transported them six hours to bring Binky home.
After completing a long journey, Mr. B can now relax and enjoy the company of the family that rescued him from a shelter many years ago. Despite being an elderly dog, we believe he will be happy to spend his remaining days with his loving family.
