The dog couldn’t believe his eyes
In April of this year, the Washington County Animal Shelter received a call about a stray dog, called Blue, who appeared at a stranger’s home, trying to find a safe place to live.
Blue, a pit bull mix, was quickly picked up by an animal control officer and brought back to the shelter.
It was not clear how long Blue was on the streets, but he seemed to be in love with everyone he met.
“He was a lucky dog,” Shelter’s executive director, Tommy Davis, told The Dodo.
“He was a little shy at first, and he didn’t like all the dogs around him very much, but he loved the people and the staff.”
Because of Covid, the shelter was forced to close its doors to the public and was only visited by appointment.
This meant that Blue had been waiting in his kennel for months, but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise!
The shelter shared a video of Blue playing with her favorite toy on its Facebook page so that it could be introduced to any potential adopters.
Moments later, a comment appeared on the video stating, “This is my dog.”
Blue went missing from his home in Tennessee six months ago. Her boss was desperately looking for her, but eventually, she had to move to Texas for work. He thought he would never see Blue again unless his friend shared a Facebook video with him.
The favorite blue toy in the shelter was a blue squeezed ball and in our video, he was playing with that ball, “Davis said.
“Once we started talking to the owner, he said, ‘Yes, I have pictures of my dog.’ He sent us blue pictures of his house with the same blue ball that was his favorite toy in the house. It was crazy. “
Blue’s father traveled 1,200 miles to reunite, and that was all he could hope for.
It was clear the dog had an affair with the man, “Davis said.
Blue, was startled for a second, like, ‘Do I believe my eyes?’ And then there were just instant kisses and the man was crying, it was great.
Watch the heartbreaking reunion:
Blue is back home with his father, starting a new loving life in Texas.
“We wish every animal a happy ending,” Davis said.
“Being able to spend such moments makes all our hard work worthwhile.”
