Two years ago, a dog named Kovu ran away from home, and his mom, Aisha, never found him. Aisha recently decided to take in a new pet but got pleasantly surprised to find Kovu on the list of adoptable pets in a local shelter.
Aisha Nieves was a doting dog mom. Her Pitbull mix, Kovu, was an essential part of her family. So, when Kovu ran away from home in 2019, Aisha was heartbroken and devastated.
According to Aisha, Kovu was never the type of dog to run away. But two years ago, a car accident broke their front gate, and Kovu just darted off. Still, Aisha was hopeful she could find Kovu, so she looked for him for days.
Unbeknownst to Aisha, Kovu had been rescued from the streets and was placed in Lehigh County Humane Society. After getting treated for fleas and inflammation, Kovu was adopted by a good family and stayed for over a year.
But Kova’s family surrendered him to the shelter because they were facing possible eviction. The shelter took Kovu back in and placed him on adoptable dogs.
Aisha Finds Her Lost Dog
Aisha recently decided to adopt a puppy for her two sons, so she visited the Lehigh County Humane Society adoption site. After scrolling for a bit, the oddly familiar dog caught her eye. It looked a lot like Kovu, the dog she lost two years ago.
She could not believe it at first, but when she zoomed in on Kovas face, she saw a scar right above one of his eyes. Aisha vividly recalls Kovu getting that scar after getting caught in a gate when he was just a puppy.
So, Aisha called the shelter right away and presented herself as Kovas actual owner. The shelter asked for identification to prove that Kovu belonged to her.
But when Aisha got to the shelter, Kovas reaction showed it all. He jumped over Aisha excitedly, licked, and kissed her. He let out the most excited squeal! Kovu recognized her right away, even after two years of separation. It was as if they never even parted at all.
Aisha got Kovu back, and the dog is happy to be back to his original family. Watch Kovu’s sweet reunion with his family in the video below:
