10 Yrs And 1,600 Miles Later, Missing Dog Finally Finds His Way Home!

It had been 10 years since a family in the Ozarks lost their beloved dog named Razzle. Understandably, after so much time, they’d come to accept the fact that they would never get to see their furry little friend again.

But then they received a phone call that was nothing short of a miracle – Razzle had been found!

In the decade since he went missing, Razzle has been on one heck of a journey. He somehow managed to make his way from Heber Springs, Arkansas, to French Camp, California. That adds up to 1,600 miles!

While traveling around the city, Razzle managed to come across just the right people. According to the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office, after they discovered the sweet dog, they had him checked for a microchip. Thankfully, he did have one, and they were able to locate his family! That’s when volunteer pilot Jeremy Wade took over.

“The amazing dog transport folks out in California knew I sometimes fly to Heber Springs, and now he’s getting a ride with me back to his family after all these years,” Jeremy said.

Razzle’s long journey away from home was finally coming to a close! He was loaded safely onto the plane, and then the two of them headed to Arkansas, where the pup’s family was waiting for them.

“He’s now a very old dog, but now he can have the sunset of his life back home with his family in the Ozarks,” Jeremy said.

We can only imagine how stunned Razzle’s family was to hear the news, but the joy on their faces when they were finally reunited said it all.

Wow, what an emotional ending! There truly is nothing like the love between a family and their dog.
