Mike’s dog Jack went missing three years ago, but he never gave up hope that one day he would see his furry best friend again.
She spent every moment she could looking for him and putting up flyers. Although he remained hopeful, his time without Jack was depressing.
“Since I lost him, I haven’t been the same,” Mike said. “We did everything together, like I brought him to work half the time and every time we went fishing he was there. We did everything together. He was there no matter what I did.”
Then one day Jack got a call from an animal hospital eight hours away. The person on the phone asked Mike if his name was Mike and if he had a dog named Jack.
Before Mike got too excited, he wanted the hospital to check the distinguishing features to make sure it was really Jack. He told them that Jack had a bit of brown in one eye and a nail on one of his front paws was completely black. The hospital then confirmed both and Mike knew this was Jack!
Jack was found on the side of the road nearly 500 miles away. Fortunately, he was healthy and now waiting at the hospital to be reunited with his human.
Mike immediately hit the road and drove straight to the hospital to see his fur baby again.
As soon as Jack saw Mike, he ran towards him with his tail wagging. It was very obvious that Jack knew right away that it was Mike, despite the fact that it had been three years since they last saw each other.
As Mike held Jack, Jack whimpered and howled with joy. Then he rolled onto his back for some belly rubs.
