Joy for Kildare family as their dog is found alive four months after going missing

This is so heartwarming!

A Kildare family are overjoyed after their dog, which went missing four months ago, has finally been returned to them.

Alfie the lurcher was found on the side of the road in Ballinasloe, Co Galway, last Sunday, 130km away from his home.

Galway SPCA recorded the reunion and it is so sweet.

The animal service also wrote this status with their video;

"Stolen on the 7th of June 2018.
Found.. BALLINASLOE.. 14 th Oct 2018.

Four months of cruelty and neglect but today reunited with his family..
Alfie is still shut down and traumatised by his ordeal but he most defiantly knew his family had come to take him home. ❤️

We are piecing together Alfie story and as soon as we can, we will do our best to share that story with you.
For now, we are wiping away the tears and are so happy that we could play a small part in this beautiful reunion.

Not forgetting the true heroine of this story Racheal Staunton from Ballinasloe, who came across Alfie wandering yesterday just outside of the town.. Who picked him up. Took him home and made the call to us."

We're delighted that this family got their happy ending and that Archie is back home where he belongs.
