Travis Allen is a young man who lives in North Carolina and had to go through the worst nightmare of all animal lovers: he lost his dog. At Christmas, he decided to visit his family in Georgia and as always, traveled with his best friend: Chipper.
The little dog heard fireworks explode during a walk and panicked.
Travis tried to hug him and calm him down, but the puppy was so stressed that he managed to get loose from the collar and escape the noise of detonations.
Travis spent the whole night looking for him, but it was in vain. The dedicated owner spent the rest of his vacation walking the area hoping to find his dog.
He refused to lose hope, but soon he would have to go home to work and didn’t want to leave her lost puppy on the street.
It was then that Travis came into contact with a dog shelter that was very close to the area where Chipper was lost and asked for his help.
He sent pictures of Chipper and explained his situation. He had returned to his home in North Carolina but promised to return whenever possible to continue fighting for his furry friend.
Sheila Kemp, the director of dog housing; was touched by his story and decided to help him.
“In his voice, I could feel that he was heartbroken and full of sadness. I knew I had to help him and we created a team one hundred percent dedicated to finding Chipper,” said Sheila.
After almost a month, Travis received the call he was expecting. A woman found him and recognized him by the images they spread on the nets. He immediately contacted Sheila and they organized the reunion.
The adorable puppy kept wagging his tail and after a few seconds was just giving countless kisses to his beloved owner.
As soon as he realized that he was safe and that Travis had come back for him, he started howling in the tenderest way.
Watch the reunion in the video below:
The little dog seemed to tell him all his adventures through his howls and Travis couldn’t help but hug his loyal friend. There is no doubt that Chipper and his owner have a special bond and deserve never to be separated again.
I wish all lost dog stories could have a happy ending as beautiful as this one.
