Happy reunion!! This lady had to go in to hospital and left her dog in the care of her neighbour. The neighbour took the dog for a walk but took him off the leash....We found the roaming dog and took him in to the shelter. Because this dog wasn't ill or injured and his coat was well looked after, we assumed he had an owner. We loaded his profile on to the internet to hope that his owner would see him. Upon leaving hospital and learning that her dog had been lost, the lady looked on our 'found' page on our Chinese social media. She contacted us and we asked her to come down to the shelter. She answered questions for us to make sure that the dog was hers but there was no doubt he was hers because as soon as he saw her he went crazy. She had found her dog! What a lucky escape this dog had! He could so easily have been picked up by dog meat traffickers. This lady had stern words with her neighbour.
We've been asked if dogs are reunited with owners when they are lost and rescued or saved from the dog meat trade. Sometimes it can be a happy ending like this one.
