(WATCH) Supposedly Dead Dog Travels 3,000 Miles to Reunite with His Military Family

When military personnel are reassigned they can’t always bring their dogs. We all know people this has happened to. Well wait until you read this story!

When Ben and Melody (who want to keep their names private) were reunited with their dog Zeus who they had to leave in 2011 and were told by his carekeeper that he had died – they were elated!

Ben, a chief warrant officer was reassigned from Fort Bragg to South Korea in 2011. They couldn’t take Zeus, their rotweiler mix, so they left him with another family. That family then called several months later to tell them that Zeus had died.

Over time they got used to Zeus being gone and they returned to the U.S. and settled in Washington State. They then received a shocking phone call from Banfield Pet Hospital in Raleigh, North Carolina. Zeus had been found alive wandering the streets, a stray.

Luckily the couple had put a microchip in Zeus and when the dog was picked up and brought to the dog shelter they scanned it and got Ben’s contact information.

Watch the video below – imagine how you’d feel if this happened to you! Do you have an old pet that you wish you could have back? I sure do.
