The bond between a person and his pet can be very strong. When you embrace a pet dog, it will see your household as part of its pack. And when it’s separated from its pack, it is determined to find its way home. And cats are simply too persistent to be left. Animals do not know how to read map or use GPS. They have to rely on pure love to find his way home.
Here are some remarkable stories of animals returning home, in spite of being separated by miles, all for the love of their household:
Buster is a shepherd mix who was missing after the Hurricane Sandy frightened him. He was captured and put in a shelter outside the city. Right before he was set up to be euthanized, 1 of the shelter employees recognized Buster and texted his owner in the nick of time.
Bucky resided in an area in South Carolina that had actually enacted a “no dogs allowed” policy, so his owner took him to his dad’s home in Virginia. Bucky would not have this. He escaped and walked 500 miles back to South Carolina. Along the way, he befriended a yellow laboratory called Hannah, whose owner traced his microchip back to Bucky and the 2 were reunited.
The Riesgrafs took their pet Lady on a cabin trip at Bear Head Lake in Minnesota. Lady preferred to play in the forest and would always return in 1 hour or 2. But one day a fire broke out in the forest and Lady didn’t return. The family did not know exactly what happened to Lady. About 2 weeks later when the family was at their home in Duluth, someone phoned to ask if they were the owner of a collie called Lady. Turns out Lady walked 100 miles back to Duluth and was nearly home.
After being frightened by some fireworks, Holly left her owners who were holidaying 190 miles from their house. 2 months later on, a weak Holly appeared on the next-door neighbor’s backyard. After returning home, Holly never ever left her owners again.
Sue took her 5 felines together with her as she assisted her sibling transfer to California from Baltimore. After 10 days of driving they arrived to find 1 of her felines, Nova, vanished. After looking in vain, Sue ultimately needed to stop. 1 year later on, Sue stumbled upon a stray cat outside her office. She recognized the feline as Nova because of the unique mole inside her ear. Nova took a trip across the nation, simply to see Sue once again.
The Almeida household lost their turtle, Manuela, in 1982. 30 years later when some family members were cleaning an old room and discovered their old buddy hanging out among the scrap. He had actually been living off bugs the whole time.
Jaimie’s ex-wife got custody of Ginger, his basset hound, in divorce in 2003. 10 years passed and Jaimie thought if he should get a new pet dog. As he was looking through the advertisements at the shelter he saw a canine that looked slightly familiar. The very first meeting in 10 years, Ginger ran to her old friend with a huge kiss.
It’s insane how determined these animals are. I think when you like somebody that much, the distance doesn’t matter. Love will find a way. Share the love with your good friends!
