It is always difficult to lose a dog, but at times, the ordeal is especially hard. That is what happened to a pet owner when someone stole her vehicle in Charlotte, NC. As it turns out, her dog, Ruby, was inside.
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department was alerted to the theft, but it would be a couple of days before they got the news. Thankfully, the news was good.
“Detectives working this case were able to locate the dog,” a police spokesperson told The Dodo.
After finding Ruby, they went to surprise her human mother.
The reaction was beyond anything we could have hoped for.
