Every dog owner cares for his pets and understands how difficult it is to be separated from them. But nothing is worst than losing your beloved animal one day. This is exactly what happened to Ariel and Pakita, his dog.
This is the story of Pakita, the adorable pooch who lost her owner and ended up in a shelter. Two years later, something incredible happened and you won’t believe how Pakita found her way back home. Photo #6 will break your heart!
24. Pakita Got Lost
Like any other stray, Pakita was living on the streets. Walking around aimlessly, our pooch would soon be found and taken in by a shelter. Her story is only just beginning, but she’ll soon find a forever home and you won’t believe what fate had in store for our favorite doggo!
23. The Shelter
Someone passed by a street and found Pakita. As they believed she was a stray, they took her to Argentina’s Arca Animal refuge. No one knew what was going on with her even though the pooch looked healthy and well-fed.
22. Something Was Missing
After living for God knows how many days on the streets, Pakita was healthy but a bit shy. Although she didn’t seem to be hurt, Pakita wasn’t very excited to be rescued either. No one knew why…
21. New Friends
No one knew what happened to the pooch and why she refused to make new friends. Time passed by but unfortunately, nothing changed. The shelter staff was desperate and a solution had to be found otherwise she won’t be able to find a family really quickly.
20. Nobody Adopted Her
Two years passed and the people at the shelter couldn’t find her a family. She was too big and people usually looked for puppies rather than older dogs. Pakita has lost all hope, and sadly this was not all.
19. Rejected for Not Being a Puppy
Volunteer Silvia Ferreyra from the animal shelter said that ‘People prefer puppies. So, for two years, she stayed with us.’ But no one knew at that point what was about to happen. You won’t believe how quickly the circumstances changed for this pooch!
18. The Dog Was Waiting For Someone
Pakita didn’t have a chance at being adopted. So many people that came to adopt haven’t shown much interest in adopting her. But everything would soon turn alright and you’ll be amazed to see how it all happened!
17. It Was Time for Social Media
The shelter turned to social media for some help with Pakita. Although she was stubborn and didn’t want to get photographed, the staff finally managed to snap a few shots. What happened next surprised everyone! A woman actually responded and her phone call shocked everyone.
16. Hope Came Back
The shelter immediately received an answer. Pakita had a human best friend and she was just a lost dog. A woman contacted the shelter to tell them that the dog was her son’s. You won’t believe how she reacted when he came to take her home!
15. Pakita Was in For a Surprise
Her owner’s name is Ariel Naveira and he was more than happy to hear Pakita was alive and healthy. He didn’t waste any moment and the following day he went to the shelter to get Pakita. Guess how the pooch reacted?!
14. A Familiar Scent
At first, Pakita didn’t recognize her owner. But he called her and as she came closer, she couldn’t contain her happiness when she felt his scent. Her reaction is so heart-breaking that it made us cry. See it for yourself in the following photos!
13. No Doubt
‘From that moment there was no doubt,’ Ferreyra said when she saw the poor dog’s reaction. Looking at the reunion, everyone present was in tears of joy. And Pakita couldn’t stop wiggling her tail! Just look at her…
12. A Happy Tail
Pakita was no longer a scared dog, as soon as she saw her owner she unleashed her happiness and started crying and licking him fiercely. She didn’t know what else to do…
11. Pakita Was Reborn
You can see how a dog really is when she’s happy. And Pakita didn’t have a hard time showing it to Ariel.
