Losing your pet is one of the worst experiences that can befall a dog owner. If that happens, dog owners will do whatever they can in order to get them back. This usually includes posting flyers, spreading the word on social media, calling the local animal shelter, and spending endless hours combing the streets for any signs of the beloved pooch.
Most of the time dog owners will eventually find their beloved pet after a few hours, days, or weeks of endless searching. Sadly, this isn’t anyways the case for some dog owners. In some cases, the months turn into years and there is no trace of the dog ever again.
For one woman by the TikTok user name Mariah Mayflower, she was on vacation when her beloved dog was stolen from her home during a break-in. She was devastated.
Doing what any dog owner would, she immediately took to social media to raise awareness of her situation and hopefully generate some leads as to the whereabouts of her dog, Hannibal. Mariah even managed to get on TV in an effort to spread the word about Hannibal. Sadly, nothing materialized and the trail went cold.
Eventually, Mariah ended up moving away and she made her way to Tennessee – 600 miles away. After two and a half years, Mariah got a call from a friend back home saying there was a dog that looked very similar to Hannibal listed on a fostering website. Mariah immediately made the trip back in hopes that it could be her missing pup.
