Mike was sad after his dog ran away, but he never gave up hope of finding him one day. This is indeed what ended up happening, 4 years later.
Mike Plas lives in Thunder Bay in the province of Ontario (Eastern Canada). 4 years ago , his best friend, a Shepherd / Siberian Husky cross by the name of Jack , had moved away from the house never to reappear . A terrible ordeal for the young man, because he and the dog were inseparable . He tells CTV News Winnipeg that the quadruped accompanied him everywhere : fishing, hunting and even often at work. Mike even took time off on Jack’s birthday to celebrate. “ He has always been more than a dog or a pet to me, ” he told the Manitoba media.
He had tried everything to find his dog, including posting in social networks , but to no avail . Then, on September 19, the long-awaited phone call finally arrived. On the other end of the line is the Centennial Veterinary Hospital in Winnipeg , 700 km away. Jack had just been dropped off there by someone who had found him on a road not far from the establishment. Staff were able to find out the identity of its owner, Mike in this case, by passing it through a microchip reader.
Without wasting time, he made the long trip to see his lifelong friend again. The reunion was full of joy , as shown in the video below posted by Mike on Facebook.
