Paul and Brittney adopted the sweet Ashley in 2014 after seeing her picture on Craigslist. Ashley was initially very shy and maintained her distance from the couple. But slowly she started to reveal her playful personality and opened up to her pet parents.
Brittney had to travel to college and spent a lot of time there which left Paul with Ashley most of the time. Paul took Ashley for long walks, playing in the park, and to his parents’ home out of town. He built a strong bond with the adorable pup and they became best friends.
In 2017, Paul and Brittney got Ashley a companion named Mavis. Ashley took Mavis under her wing and trained her how to behave like a dog. The family became bigger with time and the couple decided to buy a home.
But a few weeks into their new home, Paul returned from work and found the front door open. He checked and found that Ashley was gone. He saw the surveillance footage and found that the dog sitter had inadvertently left the front door open and Ashley had gone out a few hours before.
Paul and Brittney searched for Ashley the whole night and even got their friends and family members to help them out. They posted pictures of Ashley in many places and got numerous calls but it was never Ashley.
The couple started losing hope and were prepared for the worst. After two weeks of despair, Brittney got a picture of a dog in an adoption home that closely resembled Ashley. The home was a good 300 miles away.
Paul and Brittney decided to drive the long distance but kept their hopes to a minimum to avoid disappointment. At the adoption home, they found that it was indeed Ashley. Nobody knows how she covered the vast distance on foot.
Paul and Brittney were very happy to get Ashley back as she was an integral part of their family. The other dogs were equally glad and now the entire brood is joyful playing all the time.
Pet owners should ideally microchip their beloved pet so that they can be identified and restored easily if they get lost. It costs just a few dollars to microchip your pet and is a worthwhile investment considering the peace of mind it gives to you.
