This dog has blind luck.
A North Carolina family got back their sightless, elderly pooch that went missing two years ago — thanks to to a dogged control animal officer, according to a report Thursday.
The unnamed owners, from Charlotte, were stunned when Animal Care and Control officer Kathleen Caffray knocked on their door this week asking about their 10-year-old mutt, Juice, again, according to FOX 46.
“When I asked if they had a dog missing, they said, ‘No, we don’t have a dog,’ and I was like, ‘You don’t own Juice?’ And they’re like, ‘Oh my gosh! Juice?! Juice has been missing for two years!’” Caffray told the local station.
Caffray got a report about a stray dog ruff-ing it on the streets of Charlotte, so she scanned his microchip and used a serial number to track down his owners.
“I found it had an owner that was about three miles from where I currently was,” Caffray said.
When the owner didn’t answer the phone, she delivered the pup in person — much to the delight of Juice’s long-lost family, who gave him plenty of celebratory head scratches.
“Oh my gosh, Juice!” one of his owners can be heard saying in a clip posted by the station. “Where in the world?”
Caffray said she was thrilled to report a survivor’s tail with a happy ending.
“We see a lot of bad things every day. So, when we have something like this, it’s a happy feeling,” she said.
