Losing a pet is always hard. If you’ve had a pet, then you know that they become family. When they’re gone, a piece of you seems to be missing.

Dogs are some of the hardest to lose because of the loyalty and love that you share with them. Puppies have the power to make people happy.

When the Goldstone family got their new dog years ago, they were just as happy as anyone else would be adding a new member to the family, I’m sure. But the boxer puppy, Boozer, ended up escaping from their backyard.

They mourned the loss of their beloved puppy after many years went by without finding him, and they missed him every single day.

But in 2015, nine years after the disappearance, they got a phone call about a found dog that might be theirs.

The thoughts rushing through their heads must have been tough.

How could they know if this dog was theirs? What if it was Boozer, and he didn’t remember any of them, or he didn’t want to come home? If it wasn’t Boozer, then it might feel like losing him all over again.

Despite all of the possibly negative outcomes that could come from driving 2,500 miles to this shelter, they decided to hope for the positive outcome: the one in which they were reunited with their puppy.

They were right to do that because Boozer was indeed the found dog! Of course, the furry friend that came out to them did not look like the puppy they had lost all those years ago. Watch below to see the transformation this lost pooch went through, and the beautiful reunion that he has with his family!
