A lost puppy was located 310 miles from home and returned to his family.
One-year-old Malinois Shepherd Bandit vanished from his Côte-d’Or home in June of last year (France).
Farid, his owner, was upset and spent months trying to find his dogs’ closest buddies.
Unfortunately, he wasted several months in vain. Yet. Eight months later, Bandit was discovered by a nice stranger by the side of the road.
When the puppy was only 4 months old, it was stolen.
The dog was fortunate to have a microchip, which allowed his owner to locate him after he was found without a collar 310 miles from home.
The two closest friends were ecstatic to see each other again, and the reunion was well-organized.
Thanks to the amazing, life-saving efforts of the shelter, a thoughtful stranger, and a microchip, Bandit and Farid may now coexist in harmony.
Farid hurried to Bandit’s path as soon as he learned the good news.
He stated, “I’m so grateful to everyone who helped him get better, and I cannot stress enough how important it is to chip your dogs.” Without that chip, the miracle of bringing Bandit home would not have been possible. One of the happiest days of my life was the day Bandit got home.
Watch the touching video of the two buddies below. Farid revealed it, saying that even though they had come a long way to be together, he was happy to see his pet dog again.
