Jim Phillips, a fan of stories about dogs returning home, shared one of his own with us here at DogHeirs. He told us about a dog that showed up at his farm one day, and what happened next.
“I was out in the barn one day when I heard a dog barking,” Jim said. “I went to investigate, and there was this little mutt sitting by the gate. He was dirty and skinny, and he looked like he hadn’t eaten in a while.”
Jim took the dog inside and gave him some food and water. The dog was so grateful, and he started to wag his tail furiously. Jim could tell that the dog was lost, so he put up some flyers around the area.
A few days later, a woman came to Jim’s farm. She said that the dog was hers, and that he had been missing for a week. She was so happy to be reunited with her dog, and she thanked Jim profusely.
“I’m just glad I could help,” Jim said. “I love dogs, and I’m always happy to see them reunited with their families.”
