A Texas dog who had been missing for 7 years was found abandoned in a Florida hotel room, barely able to walk, and is now back in the arms of her doting proprietor.
Previously this month, Orange Region Animal Services policemans got a report about a dog left in a hotel room and responded to the call.
The officers found a dog who ” can hardly walk”– likely from “a bad situation of arthritis”– but was still “extremely sweet and mild,” according to an Orange Region Animal Services Facebook article. The dog’s rescuers estimated at the time that the dog was about 9 or ten years old and would likely struggle to find an adopter due to her health problems.
However, Orange County Animal Services weren’t concerned about finding a home for the pooch for long. After the officers brought the dog back to Orange Region Animal Services, the pooch was scanned for a microchip that might include contact information for an proprietor. Sanctuary workers found a microchip and used the info to locate the dog’s original family, that lived completely in Texas.
” When we called them, we provided the surprise of a lifetime,” the agency composed on social media about the dog. From the call, Orange County Animal Services learned that the canine found in the hotel room was a 12-year-old pet named Jazzy, that ran away from home 7 years back after getting spooked by fireworks.
” The family was not able to find her anywhere. They searched for her for a long time, and even after 7 years, they never ever gave up hope,” Orange Region Animal Services added.
While it is still uncertain how Jazzy ended up in Florida, her family does not care as long as Jazzy is back in their lives. After listening to that his dog lived and safe, Jazzy’s owner booked a plane ticket to Florida and picked the dog up on Saturday.
” Jazzy couldn’t take her eyes off him,” Orange Region Animal Services said of the heartfelt reunion. “She licked his hand again and again and inched her body as close as can to him.”
” Our staff and volunteers need to endure heartache and broken heart every day,” the agency concluded its post. “Every now and then, though, we get to watch something such as this, and it makes every min worth it. If we could bottle this type of love and give it to every adopter, we would.”
