When animal control officers picked up a sad-looking «abandoned» Pit Bull, they knew there wasn’t much hope for this elderly baby.
)The Pit Bull was named Hank and put up for adoption. But even after training in behavior and socialization, Hank didn’t «act» the way the adopters wanted him to. The poor dog was deemed a «failure» and put on the casualty list.
However, a miracle happened when one of the shelter workers found a ‘missing dog’ photo that looked quite similar to Hank. The missing dog, Titan, was stolen about a year ago and his heartbroken owner, Barry Gearhart, had since been searching for his beloved dog.
Just 2 days before Hank’s scheduled euthanasia, the workers informed Barry about Hank. The desperate man came running towards the shelter and ran anxiously towards the kennel.
It took barely a second for Barry to recognize his dog, and the man burst into tears as he reached out for his desperate dog. Seeing the Pit Bull’s emotional reaction for the first time, the workers had no doubt that he was indeed a Titan!
Thanks to this fluke of events, Titan is back home in the safe arms of his father. Titan has been with Barry since he was a puppy, which is why he was hesitant to warm up to another person. What a rare and beautiful happy ending!
