Family reunited with shelter dog after three years
Posted on March 4, 2010 under Pet Health & Safety
Sometimes, giving up an animal can be the hardest thing for a family to do. However, it could be in the pet’s best interest.
One family from Washington state surrendered their German Shepherd, Haley, to the Humane Society for Tacoma and Pierce County three years ago as a result of an undisclosed family crisis that prevented them from providing proper pet care, according to OhMiDog.com.
The dog was never far from the unidentified family’s thoughts, as they kept pictures and mementos of their beloved canine. Assuming that too much time had passed, the family decided to get a new dog once they were freed of their problematic predicament.
As luck would have it, a family had adopted Haley in 2007 but had returned her a few days ago because they were having problems with her running away. When her original family came to the shelter looking for a new pup, they were reunited with their old friend.
The family quickly adopted Haley and they now have regained the family member that they had lost years ago.
