An owner travels 310 miles to find his stolen dog.
After being found 310 miles from home, a lost dog was reunited with his owner.
Bandit, a one-year-old Malinois shepherd, disappeared from his home in Côte-d’Or, France in June of last year.
His owner, Farid, was devastated and spent months searching for his best canine friends.
Unfortunately, his search was unsuccessful for several months. Yet. A kind stranger found Bandit on the side of the road eight months later.
The poor dog had been stolen when he was only 4 months old.
The dog was found without a collar 310 miles from home, but was lucky enough to have a microchip, which allowed him to find his owner.
The reunion was well organized, and the two best friends were thrilled to be reunited!
Bandit and Farid can now live together thanks to the incredible rescue work of the shelter, a kind stranger and a microchip.
When Farid heard the good news, he rushed to Bandit’s side.
“I am so grateful to everyone who helped him recover, and I can’t stress enough the importance of getting your pets chipped,” he said. Bringing Bandit home is a miracle that wouldn’t have happened if it weren’t for this chip.” The day Bandit came home was one of the happiest days of my life.”
