Stories of lost pets are the most heartbreaking ones, but when these stories end happily - with a grown man's joyous tears no less - what was once heartbreaking turns to the most wholesome feel-good stories in the world.
200 days ago, just over 6 months, a man named Pat lost his dog. As the Washington County, TN Animal Shelter Facebook post tells, he "searched and searched but couldn't find him." Blue - the adorable dog - was as good as gone in Pat's eyes, especially when Pat had to move to Texas for his work. "He thought he'd never see Blue again," the shelter says.
So, when suddenly a friend of Pat's sent him "a video of his dog playing ball in the shelter", we can only imagine Pat's joy. But what we don't need to do is imagine his joy when they finally reunited, since Pat drove 1200 miles from Texas to get his doggo, and the shelter caught it all on camera. Be prepared for tears of joy, because these pictures might just break your heart with how wholesome they are.
"This is why WE NEVER GIVE UP," the Facebook post says, and we couldn't agree more. Check out pictures and the video of their adorable reunion below, and seriously - prepare the tissues.
