“Suddenly There Was A Connection.” Family Reunites With Their Lost Pet In The Most Unexpected Way. “Everything Worked Out For The Best.”

Virginia family of one adult and three children smiling as they sit on a bench outside with their dog, Dante, alongside them.

When you find, or in this case, re-find the right dog… you just know.

This Virginia family was absolutely heartbroken when their dog, Dante, went missing. As much as they tried searching for him everywhere they could, they had no luck. Finally, after enough time had passed, they began looking for a new pup to join the family. None of them felt right, though, until one of the kids spotted an oddly familiar face at Fairfax County Animal Shelter.

Wow, what are the odds!? It truly seems as though this sweet family was meant to find Dante again — and they couldn’t be happier about it. Just look at this heartwarming photo taken of them soon after their serendipitous reunion!

We think it’s safe to say that this Virginia family will be telling the story of how they reunited with Dante for quite a while. Now, to celebrate with endless, well-deserved treats!

Don’t forget to share this heartwarming story to welcome Dante back home.
