There are hundreds of stories about dogs whose love for their human is stronger than any obstacle. And a dog’s loyalty is unquestionable, and if we needed any more proof, we won’t need it after reading this heartwarming story.
The story of Leo, a loyal dog in Thailand who has been waiting for his owners in the same spot for nearly four years, went viral on social media. The best part is that a story like this can only have one happy ending! It all began four years ago, when his owners accidentally ʟᴇꜰᴛ the ᴘᴏᴏʀ pooch near a gas station. From that day on, Leo never ʟᴇꜰᴛ that place and patiently waited four long years until the return of his family.
People tried to help Leo, he was ᴛʜɪɴ and sᴛᴀʀᴠɪɴɢ. It seemed like he developed some sort of sᴋɪɴ ᴅɪsᴇᴀsᴇ. A 45-year-old woman named Saowalak fed him as much as she could and took him home, but every time Leo ᴇsᴄᴀᴘᴇᴅ and was found in the same spot by the road. So she gave up and just brought food for him next to the road.
Another concerned citizen named Anuchit Uncharoen took to social media to try to find Leo’s owners. In his post, he uploaded some pictures and mentioned that the dog has been waiting four years for his ʟᴏsᴛ owner. And a miracle happened, the real family of Leo found him. They contacted Anuchit Uncharoen and told him that Leo looks like BonBon – the dog they ʟᴏsᴛ four years ago in 2015. The family tried to search for their dog after they realized he had gone ᴍɪssɪɴɢ, but didn’t manage to find him and assumed the ᴡᴏʀsᴛ. They said:” BonBon had jumped out of the car when they had stopped at a petrol station in early 2015, and despite their week-long efforts to look for him he was nowhere to be found.”
BonBon was really happy to see his family, but surprisingly not willing to follow them home. It seemed like he decided to stay with the woman that has been caring for him for the past four years. The family supported BonBon’s decision and let him stay with Saowalak. The family promised to help take care of BonBon, come visit and help pay for any ᴠᴇᴛ bills. Everyone on social media was surprised and confused, but happy that BonBon finally got to see his old family and found a new home.
