Little dog reunites with his family after being lost for 5 years

Paris didn’t recognize the people in front of him at first. It was 5 years after he had seen them for the last time. But as soon as he realized who they are he jumped into his mom’s arms and refused to get back down.


Animal rescuer Bob Swenson said that after he recognized them, he wanted to be held. Being with your family again is the best thing in the world. So he enjoyed it.

Swenson who was part of the Lost Animal Resource Group was searching for another lost pet along a set of Baltimore city train tracks when one of the cameras he had set up to monitor for dogs alerted him that someone had stumbled into one of his traps. When he watches the camera he saw the two little eyes crawling up into the trap.


The pup was nervous and scared but handled it well. He got the pup to his home and then let him settle in his home office. With the help of Rachel Moxley of Microchip Help, Swenson was able to find Paris’ true home. Soon he could see them reunited.

Paris, mom was so happy that her loving pet is back in her arms. She couldn’t believe that they found him. She told Swenson that Paris had escaped while briefly staying with a family friend. But she never lost hope in him. “She had been praying and hoping that Paris would be found and didn’t get another dog for almost three years. She never gave up and kept praying.” Swenson said. He had already been involved in many pet rescues, but he says that this one is extra special.


It’s still unclear where Paris’ was for the last five years. Swenson thinks that he may be with someone else before escaping to the train tracks. However, it’s now clear that Paros will never feel lost again.
