Reunions can happen in the strangest places, when you least expect it.
Three years after losing his dog, this man gets a call that he's downtown by the opera house. Personally, I'd be so overwhelmed with emotion I'd likely have to be in therapy forever. Can you imagine getting this call?
"62-year-old Giorgi Bereziani lost his beloved dog named Jorge in 2015. All this time since then, he was trying to find his beloved companion. He was putting up ads, combing the streets, but all without success. Three years later, the workers of an opera house called the desperate man and said that a dog, looking like his dog, was walking near their building. Giorgi immediately went to the scene. He saw a black and white dog near a tree and called its name. The dog rose to its feet and wagged its tail. Sniffing at the owner, George's dog threw his front paws at him and began to whimper, as if in disbelief. "Jorge, is that you?" George Jorge, it's you! Oh, dear boy, how are you, boy? "Giorgi says, beside himself with excitement. Giorgi noticed a yellow tag on the dog's ear, which meant that the dog was taken from the streets by animal control workers, but it was considered harmless to society, so the dog was vaccinated and released."
Man Finds His Dog in the Street After 3 Years
What awesome policy is this? Animal control tagged him but let him back into the city since he was harmless. I imagine there are a lot of stray dogs but not overcrowded shelters. The downside is they didn't look for the owner perhaps? Who knows what the timeline was for this story so I'm not going to speculate. The beautiful ending is all that matters here.
This reunion is so sweet. I forgot to tell you to grab Kleenex...
