The vast majority of us cherish our pets like family, and on the off chance that we lost one of them, we could never surrender looking until the point when we discovered them. One man lost his canine and suspected that he could never observe him again. Bill Ballato was living in Rhode Island with his canine Bosco when the puppy escaped. Ballato searched for Bosco for quite a while yet never discovered him. Everybody knew Ballato and Bosco, and when he set up flyers searching for the puppy, he accepted somebody would bring him back.
He needed to move a couple of months after the fact. Tragically, he did as such without Bosco. He never anticipated that would see the canine again, yet he thought about him regularly. Ballato stated: “There were evenings, frightful evenings that I pondered, particularly after huge tempests. In any case, something revealed to me that he’d make it.” Then one day, two years after Bosco disappeared, Ballato got a call from a companion. His companion was a cop who thought she recognized the pooch. She needed to get him and help rejoin him with Ballato.
A woman named Sheila Graham volunteers with Missing Dogs of Massachusetts. She decided to help, and she set a trap for the dog. It took some time, but she eventually captured the dog. She knew it was time to transport him to Ballato. Graham said: “Bosco played a good game of chess. But I love chess, so it’s just a matter of narrowing down his playing field.”Graham has assisted with many reunions between people and pets. All of them had been local, though. Ballato wanted to get Bosco back, but he is disabled and was not able to make the trip. That’s when Graham decided she would make the 2,000-mile drive from Rhode Island to Colorado to deliver Ballato his long-lost dog.
Ballato couldn’t believe it. He had no reward money to offer her, but Graham wasn’t worried about it. She said that she was just happy to be able to help the man and his dog. She said: “That’s the reward. It makes the 36 hours in a car worth it.”When word got out that Graham had made the drive to reunite Ballato and Bosco, her friends wanted to help her get back some of the costs of the trip. They created a GoFundMe account for her. Graham commented on the page, saying: “Hi, everyone; so happy to have been able to assist … It was the right thing to do all around. Safety first. This was a huge group effort from the start … An amazing group of friends, animal lovers, strangers, etc. all wanting one thing. To get Bosco back home to his dad and 2 fur brothers… Thank you to each and every one of you.
Those who assisted behind the scenes, during the transport, and raising the funds to care for Bosco’s surgery (first and foremost) … “It was an amazing trip, weather tried to stop us, and it was nasty. Nothing could stop our determination to bring him home … Thanks again for everything … To keep up to date with Bosco’s continued journey, be sure to visit him on FB – Bosco’s Journey Home. We will be updating photos, stories, links about all of this once time allows. For now, Bosco is acclimating well. Way to go Team Bosco …”
