For almost two months, Max the dog couldn’t seem to find his way home.
He went missing in May in San Antonio, Texas and his family was afraid that they would never see him again. Until Deputy Perez of the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office received a call about a dog found wandering a local neighborhood.
Perez remembered a lost dog flyer that had been up at the substation looking for Max. When Perez arrived at the scene where the dog was found, the dog was in fact Max! Perez already knew about Max from the ʟᴏsᴛ dog flyers in the station, so as soon as he arrived at the scene, he instantly knew it was him.
So he called the family to give them the good news, and shortly after, they were reunited.
It is still unclear how Max sᴜʀᴠɪᴠᴇᴅ so long on his own, but regardless, his family was over the moon to have him back. Max is now safe and sound at home thanks to the great work from the anonymous caller who spotted Max and Perez for recognizing him and bringing him home.
The story is one that warmed the hearts of many online. The little girls were clearly so happy to have their best friend back — and it was all because of one kind officer that it happened.
This story was posted on social media, and the post went viral and review comments.
“Man, to see these little girls’ faces is priceless!” one commenter said. “These little critters have major impacts on our hearts. Thank you, office Perez for delivering their baby back to the family. Much love to you!”
