After a missing dog was found 310 miles from home, he was finally reunited with his owner.
Back in June last year, Bandit, a one-year-old Malinois Shepherd, went missing from his home in Côte-d´Or (France).
His owner, Farid, was terribly shaken by this, and spent months looking for his canine best friends.
Unfortunately, his search didn’t provide positive results for months.
Yet. Eight months later, Bandit was found by a good Samaritan on the side of the road.
The poor dog was stolen when he was only 4 months old.
The dog was found without a collar at 310 miles from home, but he was luckily equipped with a microchip, which helped him to eventually be reintroduced to his owner.
The reunion was well-organized, and the two best friends were finally together, overjoyed!
Due to the incredible, life-saving work of the shelter, a good Samaritan, and a microchip, Bandit and Farid are now able to continue living their lives together.
When Farid heard the good news, he immediately took the road to pick up Bandit.
“I’m so grateful for everyone who had a hand in his recovery and I cannot stress enough the importance of chipping your pets. Having Bandit home is simply a miracle that would not have happened without that chip. Bringing Bandit home was one of the happiest days of my life.”
Watch the heart-melting video of the two friends below. Farid shared it, noting that it had been a long journey for the two of them, but he was beyond happy to have his beloved dog back.
