We cover many ‘lost dog found’ stories, but it’s not often that moments like these are captured on camera.

Windy went missing just before Christmas of last year when Sarah Carroll’s son accidentally left a door open. Carroll said after months passed with no sign of her dog, she believed Windy was likely struck by a car or snatched to be used as a bait dog for a local fighting ring.

When Carroll’s phone rang on September 30th, she had a hard time believing what she heard: Garland Animal Services had Windy, and had identified her via her microchip. Plans were made for a reunion, and cameras were rolling when the two first saw one another after more than nine months apart.
