Joshua Friesner took his dog outside for a walk back in March, surprisingly, the dog smelled something and bolted. Since then, the two have been separated from each other.
Cora went missing for months and this greatly disappointed Friesner who has been searching for months and trying to even go so far as to spend hundreds of dollars to hire a pet detective.
Friesner never gave up hope that he’d be once reunited with his awesome friend. Until last week, when he got the news that he'd been waiting for. Cora had finally been found after seven long months, she was so excited to be reunited with her long-lost human friend.
But how did Josh feel when he first saw his dog nearly seven months to the day after she ran off?
"When I first saw her honestly I was like 'dang you got fat! Where have you been?' Because I lost her at 38 pounds and she came back at 54 pounds," Friesner said. "So that was my first reaction but then it like, I don't know, just a rush of enjoyment and happiness."
The dog had gained a whopping 16 pounds while she was on the lam. We think that cute face landed her lots of leftovers, or someone took her in for a while. The dog owner credits getting her micro-chipped with being crucial to their reunion after several months of searching. Friesner’s case is one among the many dog owners who get the rare opportunity to be re-united with their dogs after months or years of separation.
