Anthony Rogers, a homeless man in Memphis, Tennessee, has been living on the streets with his beloved pooch, Bobo. Unfortunately, when he woke up one morning, he realized that his dog was missing.
The Memphis Animal Shelter narrated the incident, and it was mentioned that the Pit Bull Lab mix has been missing for weeks already. Rogers said that he immediately asked for help from some of his friends to find the lost dog.
Everyone kept looking for Bobo. They even put up some flyers around the area so people can notify them if they see the missing pooch.
On Wednesday, Rogers received a call from the Memphis shelter. According to the staff at the animal shelter, they recognized Bobo because of the ads posted about the missing dog.
A few minutes after the call, Rogers arrived at the shelter. His heartwarming reunion with Bobo was caught on camera, and it was so beautiful.
💙 TEARJERKER REUNION ALERT 💙Anthony is an artist who found himself homeless after some devastating events in his life. He doesn’t have a place to live, and he doesn’t always have food to eat. But he has a best friend, a sweet dog named Bobo. And he always makes sure Bobo has enough to eat. A couple weeks ago, Anthony woke up to find Bobo was gone. He was distressed and immediately contacted friends to help him look for Bobo. They made signs and put them all over town. They talked to the people who knew Anthony and Bobo. When a dog matching Bobo’s description showed up at MAS yesterday, one of our employees, Emily, recognized Bobo immediately! She called the number on the LOST poster, and Anthony’s friend gave him a ride to the shelter within minutes to see Bobo again. Their reunion was pure joy. Bobo could not contain his happiness at seeing his dad again. Today Bobo got neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated, and we found out he was heartworm negative. We sent him back to Anthony with a year’s supply of heartworm prevention, a bag of dog food, and a harness, leash, collar, and ID tag. Bobo is healthy and happy, but he needs to keep going to the vet every year to stay that way. If you’d like to donate toward his continued care at Utopia Animal Hospital so that’s one less thing Anthony has to worry about, call 901-746-8758.Music: Dreamcatcher from https://www.purple-planet.comhttps://www.gofundme.com/f/help-anthony-and-bobo-get-back-on-their-feet
