A young boy was caught on camera breaking into tears as he was reunited with his lost dog that had been missing for several weeks.
As mother April Elizabeth Licata explained, the entire family, and especially her son Carter, were extremely upset after their pug named Piper went missing.
According to Elizabeth, she opened the front door of their home to let Piper go pee but got terrified after she didn’t return and was nowhere to be seen minutes later.
“On November 18, we let our pug, Piper, out to go potty, and she didn’t come back when we called her,” Elizabeth wrote in her Facebook post.
“It had been a long two and a half weeks for my oldest two children, Carter and Natalie, thinking they would never see their puppy again.
“Piper was a very special gift for Carter’s 12th birthday: he had always wanted a black pug since he spent his baby years with another pug he loved very much -Oliver- who had to go live with another family while his baby brother was sick. We posted and shared and talked to neighbors, news venues, and community groups but as the days passed, our hope waned.”
Fortunately, after the family has lost all hope, they were told that a black pug was found and taken in by a local shelter.
“My husband and I were going out to dinner and honestly, there was an outcry of joy in the truck. We were shocked and elated!” Elizabeth said.
Since her son was out of town at the time of the reunion, the mum decided to surprise him by taking Piper with her as she picked him up from the school.
After seeing the pug, young Carter broke into tears before joining her on the front seat and hugging her tightly.
“My son loves his dog so much, was sick while she was gone, and tonight she’s sleeping next to him again. What a Christmas miracle for our family,” Elizabeth concluded in her post.
