One of the worst nightmares imaginable to dog parents is their dog going missing. That’s exactly what happened when Pakita the dog escaped from her yard. Her devastated doggy dad, Ariel, looked everywhere in Argentina he could for his sweet doggo. She was nowhere to be found. Where Pakita actually ended up is an animal shelter called Arca Animal. There, she was so sad and depressed. It was clear she missed her family, but she had no way of being reunited. She was just another stray dog. At the shelter, poor Pakita was passed over by potential adopters time and again for over two years. She had a grey muzzle and appeared so sad that no one wanted her. No one, except her devastated family left behind. The folks at the animal shelter decided to put some photos up on social media. Although Pakita was not happy to have her photo taken, they managed to get a few shots. Valeria Nieves, the mother of Pakita’s doggy dad, saw the photo and knew it was the missing pooch. She contacted the shelter, and a very tearful reunion took place. The dog didn’t recognize Ariel at first, but dogs never forget the scent of something. You can witness the exact moment she “smelled” her doggy dad and the joyful reunion took place. Watch below, as you share in the excitement. These two will never be apart again!
