Losing a pet is always hard. If you’ve had a pet, then you know that pets become family, and when they’re gone, a piece of you seems to be missing.
Dogs are some of the hardest to lose because of the loyalty and love that you share with them. Puppies have the power to make people happy — I think there is proof in that every day — but especially in this video of a grandma getting a surprise pet.
When the Goldstone family got their boxer puppy, Boozer, he ended up escaping from their backyard.
They had mourned the loss of their puppy after some years went by without finding him, and they had missed him every day since. Nine years later, they got a phone call about a dog that was found that might be theirs.
The thoughts rushing through their heads must have been tough…
How could they know if this dog was theirs? What if it was Boozer, and he didn’t remember any of them, or he didn’t want to come home? If it wasn’t Boozer, then it might feel like losing him all over again.
Despite all of the possibly negative outcomes that could come from driving 2,500 miles to this shelter, they decided to hope for the positive outcome. The outcome they’d been hoping for for the past nine years, where they’d reunite with their puppy and take him back home to his family.
And they were right to do that, but the dog that came out to them did not look like the dog that they had lost all those years ago. Watch below to see the transformation this lost puppy went through, and the reunion that he has with his family!
