If you own a dog or are simply an animal lover in general, it might be challenging to walk by a missing dog without wanting to stop and assist.
Jason Gasparik, a resident of Charlotte, was walking past the post office in his neighborhood when he saw a chocolate lab that was lost. He felt driven to assist the terrified dog since he couldn’t bring himself to go the other way. He took her home with him and started looking for her family on social media right away. He posted pictures of her on Facebook, Twitter, Next Door, PawBooster, and Twitter, but nobody seemed to know to who she belonged.
Gasparik then went to the vet with Roxy the dog to see if she had a microchip. Gasparik dialed the number, feeling relieved that she had one. Relief was momentary, though, since the breeder from Pennsylvania who answered the phone barely remembered selling the puppy to a Charlotte resident in the previous years. It turned out that the microchip was useless.
Gasparik persisted in his resolve to assist Roxy in finding a home, nevertheless. He made a cardboard sign that stated, “Do you know this lost dog? ” before deciding to get crafty and retro. The following day, the pair waited on a busy street corner. The following day, they went back to the same location and waited once more.
Gasparik’s efforts eventually paid off when Roxy’s owner, Sam, happened to be passing through the area in search of her. Gasparik’s good deeds allowed Roxy and Indy, whose real name was later discovered to be Roxy, to be joyfully reunited.
Both the dog and the owner may experience severe stress after losing a dog.
