Anyone who spends their days squeezing their furry four-legged friends will understand the sheer panic you experience when you can’t find your beloved pooch. Hours spent canvassing the neighbourhood, only to come home empty-handed can leave any owner devasted, which is exactly what happened to a couple from Goodwood.
However, this story has a happy ending thanks to the big hearts of Guy Clark and Kate Lauda.
According to Good Things Guy, Clark had spotted a homeless woman in Milnerton with a chained dog and decided to lead with his heart and help the woman, offering to purchase dog food. As he chatted with the woman, she told him that it was not actually her dog and that she had just been looking after her.
Using his power of persuasion, he managed to convince the woman to give him the dog in order to rehome it. He managed to rope in his fiance Kate into the rescue operation. She rang Rusty’s Rescues who were prepared to take the dog in.
In a surprise twist, the dog was scanned for a microchip, which provided the full details of the owners. Nearly a year ago, Pumza Goddiva Dyani and her family had been left devastated after their dogs had taken off due to their front gate being left open. She had taken to Facebook to plead with users to help her find her dog Midnight.
While it may have taken a year and the impulsiveness of a curious bystander, the family was finally reunited with their beloved dog. Take a look at the tearjerking video below:
