Long Lost Dog Reunited With Family After 20 Months of Separation!

Gunnar went missing from his family's home in Verona 20 months ago. His family desperately tried to locate him, using every option at their disposal, but Gunnar was nowhere to be found. They had given up hope. Meanwhile, agents at City of Pittsburgh Animal Care & Control were on a different hunt of their own. Officers responded to a report of a loose dog in Squirrel Hill, but were initially unable to catch the fearful pooch because of his quick responses & the proximity of Frick Park. Continued sightings over the months aided them in their search & they even tried to track the dog's footprints in the snow. Their tireless efforts to bring him to safety were eventually successful & the dog was brought to our shelter for care. Thanks to a microchip, our staff members discovered that it was Gunnar! His family was notified & arrived at our shelter this morning to reclaim him. Needless to say, there wasn't a dry eye in the house!
