No matter where we look, many of the street lamps and fences are plastered with “missing” posters. Some come with rewards while others have pleas that their pet is returned home safely. No matter what animal it is that has wandered out of your life, losing a pet can be a hugely traumatic event for anyone. After all, how would you feel is one of our family members just disappeared without a trace? Thankfully, there are several ways we can help our pets to find their way back home. Having small animals microchipped, getting identification tags for their collars, and making sure your yard is nice and secure are all ways you can prevent your pet from getting lost in the first place.
Thankfully, it seems as though chances that an owner and their lost pet will be reunited are increasing. Reports show that 75% of cats and 93% of dogs are lucky enough to be reunited with their owners, even after they have run away from home. Many of these pets are taken to local shelters, but sometimes we are greeted by kind-hearted strangers that return our furry additions to their rightful owners. However, even after all that good news, this family were beginning to lose hope they would ever see their dog again. Their dog was missing for a month, and now their other pooch was starting to act strangely. Would they ever be able to recover from the loss in their family?

No matter how hard we try and keep them safe, sometimes our friends slip away from us. No, we’re not talking about our college friends – we mean the four-legged companions of the world. After all, is there anyone better to snuggle up with at night or see as soon as you walk through the door? We thought not. Unfortunately, dogs can wander off during their walks, escape from their backyards, and even get taken by thieves. This can in turn have a devastating effect on their family. Thankfully, this family had another pooch to keep them company. They might not have been able to replace their lost dog, but at least they helped to fill the void that had been left. That was until they started acting strangely…
