After 8 months of searching, a Massachusetts family was reunited with their dog who was found 175 miles away from home.
Kaiser, a 5 year old king shepherd, disappeared in June 2018 after jumping over a wall while a woman was dog sitting him. For the first three or four weeks the family would drive 1,500 miles every day to search for the 130 pound dog.
According to a missing dogs post, in January a woman in Maine found out a dog had eaten half the meat she stored on her porch. The woman fed him for three weeks before animal control brought him to Responsible Pet Care of Oxford Hills, a no-kill shelter, on February 6th.
The shelter posted on Facebook that the dog, later to be identified as Kaiser, acted timid and shy. The post got dozens of comments of people wanting to give Kaiser a new life, but the shelter had to wait to see if he would be claimed.
The family phoned the shelter and identified the dogs features along with providing teeth photos. The shelter reported when the family showed up Kaiser immediately responded to his name and jumped on his owners while wagging his tail!
