Dogs love their humans. And the way they show their affection, it’s hard to imagine how they can leave their family out of boredom, adventure or a potential partner.
When Leo ran away from home a couple of months ago, his family was left devastated. They searched everywhere for their beloved puppy and found no luck in locating him. They reached the point where they felt a bit hopeless.
Then, a miracle happened
Sertaç Araç, the son of Leo’s owner, happened to be in a nearby town for work. As he was walking by a cafe, he saw someone who looks awfully like the family’s missing dog.
At first, he wasn’t so sure that it was Leo. For one, the dog looked unkempt and appeared to be having a hard time living the street life. Plus, given the 60-mile distance from home, he thought it couldn’t be Leo. However, his instinct simply refused to ignore the possibility that it was him.
So, to make sure, he took a picture and sent it to his mom and dad.
His parents immediately drove to the area to see the dog for themselves. They didn’t waste time and they certainly didn’t want to miss this precious opportunity. The family was so eager to see Leo that all of them drove 60 miles.
Once the parents laid eyes on the dog, they knew it was him
And Leo recognized his family instantly, too. He didn’t hesitate. As soon as he saw his parents, he immediately went up and greeted them. Judging by the way he was wagging his tail and the number of kisses he gave his dad and the rest of the family, it was obvious that Leo missed them so much.
He greeted each one with such excitement and he was greeted at the same level of enthusiasm, too. Even the kids were so happy to finally see him again.
After two months of being away, Leo was finally going back home
The reunion was full of emotions. Even on the way home, Leo just couldn’t let go of his family.
While Leo’s story ended on a happy note, the family isn’t completely over what happened. It seemed that Leo didn’t really run away from home. As their two other dogs mysteriously disappeared at the same time as Leo, they are considering themselves as a target of a local dog-napper.
The two dogs are yet to be found. However, with how they located Leo, they are now feeling more positive that they will also see the other two dogs. It might take time and a bit of luck, but they’re hopeful that they’d see them again.
We’re so happy Leo is home. I will look carefully everywhere I visit in hopes we find [the other two dogs].- Araç said.
Leo is now safe and comfortable at home with his family. He will no longer have to walk hours on the street or endure a long day of trying to find food. He won’t have to feel afraid anymore as his family will do everything they can to make sure they never get separated from each other again.
