A woman has been reunited with her beloved dog, which she had lost two years prior, after stumbling upon him while searching for a new pet to adopt, according to CNN.
Aisha Nieves was browsing the list of adoptable dogs on the Lehigh County Humane Society (LCHS) website when she spotted a Pitbull-Rottweiler mix with a striking resemblance to her missing pet, WFMZ reported.
Kovu, her dog, had gone missing in the summer of 2019 after he escaped through a hole in the fence of her backyard in Pennsylvania, the media outlet said.
Nieves had desperately searched for him but, when she asked the LCHS if they’d seen him, they said that Kovu had been adopted by another family, CNN said.
After going missing in June 2019, Kovu was treated for fleas and inflammation for four months until a new family eventually took him in and renamed him “Ash,” CNN reported.
But the family had to return Kovu after being evicted from their home recently, LCHS’s community manager, Julie Huber, told CNN.
After this, Kovu reappeared on the humane society’s website, and Nieves spotted a listing that looked exactly like her dog. Nieves recognized a scar above the dog’s right eye, making her certain that it was Kovu, WFMZ said.
She immediately called LCHS to alert them, the media outlet added, and Kovu and Nieves were reunited on June 18.
“As soon as he started coming, he started squealing and screaming and yelling and jumping on me, kissing me,” Nieves told WFMZ.
“I love him so much. I’m just so happy he’s back,” she added.
