Huskies are known for being a super vocal breed. They are even known to carry a tune. “Siberian Huskies are vocal. They rarely bark but will whine, or moan, and also chirp and howl. Head held high, they will produce one of the most haunting songlike sounds. Now, this Siberian song fest may be music to the ears of a Siberian and the Siberian Husky fancier, but the neighborhood may not agree,” RescueEveryDog.org writes. But it’s this very attribute that enabled a lost Siberian Husky to be reunited with his owner.
A Siberian Husky had been reported as missing by his owner who lives in the city of Beer Sheva in the Southern District of Isreal, according to Daily Mail. A dog fitting the description was found by a group of teenagers in a field at an archeological site outside of Beersheba. The teens brought the weakened and malnourished dog to the Israeli police.
The officers brought the dog to a police station outside of the city and administered some aid to it, The Jerusalem Post reports. The officers then reached out to the man who reported that his dog was missing. They told the man to drive over to see if it was, in fact, his dog. But the man had a better idea. He said there was a quick and easy way to identify his dog. He told the police to play the dog’s favorite songs. If the Siberian Husky sang along, they’d know it was his dog. So, the officers did just that.
They played the dog the theme song to his favorite Israeli TV show “Shemesh,” which was taken off the air in 2004, and the theme song for the Canadian/American children’s programme “Arthur” titled “Believe In Yourself” by Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers. The Siberian Husky immediately perked up when he heard his favorite jam play. It wasn’t long before the Siberian Husky started belting out in an epic sing-a-long. The Israeli police captured the dog’s performance on video. The dog looked so joyous to be singing his favorite songs. Perhaps it reminded him of home.
