It’s always heartbreaking when a dog goes missing, but one family’s tears of sorrow turned into tears of joy after being reunited with their lost dog.
Flyers described Max as a mixed-breed dog who was “super friendly” and “very calm and sweet.”
“We miss him dearly,” his family wrote.
Deputy Perez of the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office got a call about a dog that was “found wandering in the neighborhood,” according to the department.
Arriving on the scene, Perez recognized the dog as one she had seen on the missing flyers around town. He contacted the family, and sure enough, the dog was Max, finally found after many weeks away from home!
Photos shared by the sheriff’s office show the family’s two little girls embracing Max, with one of them so overwhelmed with joy that she can’t hold back tears:
“That sweet, thankful face says so much!” one comment reads.
“To see these little girls face this is priceless!” another wrote. “These little critters have major impacts to our hearts.”
Thank you to Deputy Perez for helping to reunite Max with his worried family — it must’ve been some moment to see this emotional reunion in person, a reminder of the importance of pets in our lives and how important it is to get lost animals back to their families.
