Dog Lost For Years Is So Happy To Be In His Best Friend’s Arms Again

Earlier this month, volunteers at this animal shelter in Ukraine, welcomed a large blue-eyed stray dog for whom life on the streets had not been kind. His thin body and mangy coat hinted at the many difficulties he had faced.


The rescuers were determined to find the dog a happy new home, without realizing, of course, that he already had one. And that someone missed him so much.

On the day the dog was brought in, his photo was taken and posted online to look for possible adopters.

Given his condition and the time it would take to recover it, it might seem unlikely that the sick puppy would have much interest, but the sadness in his eyes touched thousands of souls.

Within few hours, the post was shared hundreds of times by people around the world ang got so much viral.

Those social media actions made all the difference. 

Just after two days, the shelter was contacted by a woman whose dog had been stolen from her yard back in 2017. She got surprised by after seeing how similar that dog looked like his missing puppy.


“She’d been looking for his dog for two years,”. But could it be him?

The next day, a meeting was organized to confirm the suspicion, and it soon became apparent that it was a meeting. And a sincere one at that:

Фантастический понедельник!Слезы радости с самого утра! Наш несчастный голубоглазый алабай нашел прежних хозяев! Оказывается, парня выкрали со двора два года назад. Все это время хозяева искали его, размещали фото в группах. И вот оно – чудо. Благодаря вашим репостам собаку увидела подруга семьи, проживающая аж в Австралии!!! Позвонила владельцам и те примчались за своим сокровищем!Теперь у Лордика(да, ещё один Лорд) все будет хорошо! Ну а мы благодарим всех, кто сделал репост, ведь именно благодаря вам спасена собачья жизнь, а в душу хозяев вернулся покой!

“Tears of joy in the morning!” The shelter wrote about that moment, calling the meeting a “miracle”.

The dog, named Lord, had waited so long for that day to arrive. He eventually returned to where he belongs, thanks to strangers who insisted on spreading the word about him on the social media website.

“We thank everyone who shared our post,” the shelter wrote. “Thanks to you that the dog’s life was saved and peace returned to the soul of its owner!”

What do you think?
