During the first weeks of April, the Animal Shelter in Washington County received a report regarding a lost dog named Blue who stumbled upon someone’s house seeking refuge. To ensure the dog’s safety, an animal control officer was immediately deployed to retrieve the pit bull mix and bring him back to the shelter.
The duration of Blue’s time as a street dog was unknown, but he appeared to enjoy the company of every human he encountered. Tammy Davis, the executive director of the shelter, shared that “He had a cheerful and optimistic personality. Initially, he was hesitant and didn’t like being around other dogs, but he was very warm and loving towards people and the shelter staff.”
As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, the shelter had to implement new guidelines and only allow visitors by appointment. This led to a decrease in the number of people visiting, and Blue was left to wait in his kennel for several months. Surprisingly enough, this turned out to be a positive thing for him.
The shelter decided to showcase Blue’s playful side by sharing a video of him with his favorite toy on their Facebook page in hopes of finding him a new home. However, they received an unexpected comment from someone claiming that Blue was actually their dog. As it turns out, Blue had been missing for half a year from his Tennessee home and his owner had been searching for him relentlessly. Unfortunately, his owner had to move to Texas for work and thought he would never see Blue again until a friend sent him the viral video.
The only task left to accomplish was to verify the identity of the man who claimed to be the owner of Blue. According to Davis, they confirmed the owner’s claim by identifying Blue’s favorite toy at the shelter, which was a blue squeaky ball. In the video provided by the owner, Blue was seen playing with the same blue ball. Furthermore, the owner also sent pictures of Blue in his house with the same blue ball, which was his favorite toy at home. It was a surreal moment for all involved.
The content tells the heartwarming story of Blue and his reunion with his dad after a long separation. Blue’s father traveled 1,200 miles to be reunited with his furry friend, and the moment was filled with emotion and kisses. The bond between Blue and his dad was evident, and they are now living together in Texas, enjoying each other’s company, cuddles, and playtime. The people who helped make this reunion possible are thrilled to see a happy ending for Blue and wish that all animals could experience the same love and care.
