Hard Times and Hard Decisions
For one man in Independence, Missouri, hard times meant a VERY hard decision. He lost his job, his home and his to provide for his fur-child. Reluctantly, but realistically, he turned the dog over the the Great Plain SPCA – a no kill shelter. For him it was the right decision, even though it was very difficult to swallow. That isn’t the end of the story.
Better times and a NEW Decision
That was over a year ago. Now things have changed he has regained his ability to care for a fur-child. As soon as he was sure, he looked on the shelter’s website to see if he could rescue/reunite with Reece, the 3 years old boxer/greyhound mix. He found that even though Reece had been adopted out twice, neither of those placements had worked out. The end result was that Reece was still at the shelter and available.
The man went to the shelter and the video of the reunion will touch your heart. Reece recognized his friend immediately and left no doubt in any one’s mind that he wanted to go HOME with DADDY. The man’s reunion with his dog is beautiful.
Video Goes Viral
The man’s reunion with his dog was caught on video and posted on the shelter’s Facebook page. It didn’t take long for thousands to be touched by the pup’s joyous reaction. (Boxers don’t have ANY trouble telling you with they are excited and HAPPY!.)
The shelter summed it up on their Facebook post, “Keeping families together – just one of the reasons #whywerescue.”
Enjoy the Video!
