Max the pet dog couldn’t seem to find his way home for nearly two months.
He went missing in May in San Antonio, Texas, and his family members were terrified that they would never see him again. That was until Replacement Perez of the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office received a phone call about a dog found roaming a nearby neighborhood.
Perez remembered a lost pet dog leaflet that had been posted at the substation in an attempt to locate Max. When Perez arrived at the scene where the dog was discovered, it was still Max! He called the family as soon as possible to confirm that it was their pet, and they were soon reunited.
Nobody knows how Max survived out there on his own, but his family was overjoyed to have him back. His two human siblings were especially grateful for the reunion; one couldn’t stop crying and embracing Max when the pet was returned to them. Little Max is now safe and sound at home, thanks to Perez and the good Samaritan who made the call after spotting him in the neighborhood.
Dogs are household pets, and it is heartbreaking when they go missing. The article went viral after the sheriff’s office posted about Max’s sweet reunion with his family on Facebook, and it was shared over 1,500 times.
“Male, seeing these little girls’ faces is priceless!” one commenter said. “These tiny creatures have a big impact on our hearts.” Thank you to Officer Perez for returning their child to the family. Many blessings!”
The story sparked the interest of many people online. The little girls were clearly overjoyed to have their friend back– and it was all thanks to one kind police officer.
“We need to see more stories of authorities doing great things,” another commenter on the article said. “This makes my heart race.”
The constable’s office was overjoyed to see the reunion, and Max was clearly overjoyed as well. He will no longer have to worry about where he will get his next meal or about sleeping alone on the streets.
“Max and his family members were reunited, and as you can see from the children’s expressions, they couldn’t be happier,” the constable’s office said on Facebook. “Many thanks to Deputy Perez for organizing this get-together!”
