Pakita the dog went missing three years ago, and her father was distraught and afraid. The man felt helpless as he looked for her everywhere, only to have his dreams dashed time after time. He never gave up on her, though, and kept hunting for her in several shelters until his efforts were ultimately rewarded.
Dad was overjoyed to learn that Pakita was still alive and well at a faraway shelter, where she had been living a pretty aloof and dreary existence for the previous three years. Pakita’s response when he arrived at the shelter to take her home was not what he had anticipated.
Pakita’s years of separation and living in a makeshift shelter had plainly taken their toll. Only her attendants were trusted by the despondent puppy, who refused to look at Dad. She didn’t know him at all and moaned as she was approached by a weird new human.
Pakita’s stressed-out body language was recognized by Dad, who encouraged her to approach him. Pakita hesitated, but as Dad crouched and called out to her, she felt compelled to approach him and smell him – which was a complete surprise to her! She began to recognize his scent and understood that it was her long-lost father who had come to take her home!
This footage reveals Pakita’s tremendous triumph over her misgivings and her delighted feelings when she recognises Dad! In a matter of seconds, she turns from afraid to astonished to ecstatic, and Dad tells her that she will never be lonely again. As you see their sad reunion below, turn up the volume!
