Facebook- “This is just a miracle!” These words came from the man who thought he would never see his dog again, until today!
Roughly 2 years ago Jose of Columbus, Wisconsin fell on hard times. He was going through a divorce, lost his house, became homeless and had no choice but to live in his vehicle. Jose got Chaos as a puppy and according to Jose, “Chaos helped me through so much in my life, I took him everywhere with me!” He is a very large dog with a lot of energy who had earned the name Chaos, so Jose knew that he needed to find a better temporary living situation for his furry best friend. A friend of a friend took Chaos and three months later Jose was back on his feet. Sadly, the friend refused to give the dog back, leaving Jose heartbroken. “I didn’t think I would ever see my dog again,” said Jose.
Oddly enough, this past Wednesday, a Winnebago County Services staff member was at home in South Beloit and found a dog in her driveway. An Animal Services Officer came out and brought the dog back to the shelter. The dog was wearing a collar with a 2014 National Identification Number.
On Thursday, April 28, Jose was going through his emails and he had received a microchip renewal notice. It was time to update his microchip information for Chaos. Jose became upset and disheartened. He began to reminisce on his lost friend wondering what happened to him. He began to scroll through old photos of Chaos. Suddenly, the phone rang!
Yes. This blog falls into the category of people loving to click on stories where dogs get reunited with their owners. I have zero shame about that because that right there is one of the best videos I’ve ever seen. Cried my damn face off before noon on a Wednesday and I loved every second of it. The thing that makes this better than other is the dog being REALLY skeptical at first. Like, really skeptical. Think about it. The dog hasn’t see its owner in two years. Got stolen by the guy’s friend and wasn’t sure he would ever see him again. Then as soon as the pup got one sniff of the original owner, Chaos lost his goddamn mind. Kisses on kisses on kisses. Dogs being able to remember a person faster not seeing them for two full years is mind bottling and awesome all at the same time.
PS- Fuck that recent study that says dogs don’t like to be hugged. Watch that video and tell me that’s true. Chaos wanted all of the hugs from his owner.
