A young fireman and nurse living in Santo Tirso, Portugal, named João Alves, met his faithful friend again after he disappeared more than 4 years ago.
The animal had a chip, but whoever gave it shelter over the past few years hadn’t minded.
The story had a happy ending thanks to a Facebook group of missing animals in the Santo Tirso area, where photos of the dog were posted after allegedly being run over.

After being assisted at the kennel, the owner was discovered as soon as the chip was checked.
