After being found 310 miles from home, a lost dog was reunited with his owner.
Bandit, a one-year-old Malinois Shepherd, went missing from his home in Côte-d’Or in June of last year (France). His owner, Farid, was devastated and spent months looking for his canine best friends.
Unfortunately, his search was fruitless for several months. Yet. A kind stranger found Bandit on the side of the road eight months later. The poor dog was stolen when he was only 4 months old.
The dog was found without a collar 310 miles from home, but he was lucky to have a microchip, which allowed him to be reunited with his owner. The reunion was well-organized, and the two best friends were overjoyed to be reunited!
Bandit and Farid can now live together thanks to the incredible, life-saving work of the shelter, a kind stranger, and a microchip. When Farid heard the good news, he rushed to Bandit’s road.
“I’m so grateful to everyone who helped him recover, and I cannot emphasize enough the importance of chipping your pets,” he said. Bringing Bandit home is a miracle that would not have happened if it hadn’t been for that chip.” The day Bandit returned home was one of the happiest of my life.”
