We have shared many stories of dogs and their humans reuniting after months and even years, and this is just another story in that category. But even so, stories such as this still melts our hearts and give us hope, and we hope the same could be said for you, especially if your furry companion is missing.
When this dog went missing, it devastated his human. His human had lost all hope of ever reuniting with his furry friend. And though it took eight years, he was finally reunited with his beloved dog.
In 2012, dog owner Stevie Rodger had two German Shepherds, Konan and Kavik. He lives in the Scottish countryside, and that gives him a good reason not to let his dogs roam around the ranch chasing birds.
One day, Rodger let his dogs out to go potty, just like any other day. But that day went completely different. Both of his dogs went into the neighbour’s sheep field and chased them around just for fun. But the neighbour was a terrible guy who did not find it funny.
So he brought out his shotgun and shot the dogs. Poor Konan was shot and killed; as for Kavik, he escaped the awful man’s assault but got severely injured. The family went out looking for him. They posted signs and spoke to every shop owner in the area and offered a reward to whoever finds him.
But despite all their effort, Kavik stayed missing for the next eight years. The family came into terms that they may never be able to reunite with their dog again.
But a miracle happened, and the dog was found. A skinny dog was found in Birmingham, 300 miles away from them. The dog had no microchip or any other means of identification aside from the description matching perfectly with Kavik.
When Stevie got a call about the discovery of his missing dog, he got so excited and rushed to where his dog was. He drove for four hours to see if that dog was truly Kavik.
And thankfully it was! Even though it was already eight years, he was sure that that dog was Kavik. As for Kavik, he immediately recognised his owner!
He was so happy to be reunited with his dog, and the first thing he did was to spend the night on the sofa with Kavik. Kavik is still skinny, but things may soon change now that he finally found his way back home.
