Strangers Reunite Sweet Dog With Her Military Family After 3 Years Apart

The mother and son drove hundreds of miles to reunite Piper with her old family.

When Becca Brown’s husband, a member of the United States Air Force, was deployed to Germany in 2018, the family of five knew they’d have to move to Europe, but they couldn’t take their dog.

Piper, a three-year-old blue heeler/labrador mix, loved her family and her humans, but they knew they had to leave her behind.

And, as much as they wanted to take Piper, they didn’t want to put the dog’s new family in the position of having to take the dog away from them, which would be heartbreaking.

“It didn’t have to be a one-time thing,” Becca told the Pensacola News Journal. “We didn’t want someone to fall in love with her only to have us take her away three years later,” she explained.

So they arranged for Piper to move to Kansas with a man with whom she appeared to get along well.

The man kept sending them updates on his relationship with Piper, and the family was confident that their dog was having a good time in her new environment.

We can all imagine their surprise when a vet’s office in Oklahoma called to say Piper had been found wandering the streets.

“Most of us were stunned,” Becca explained. “We just went, ‘Oh.'” Wow. This was not at all what we had anticipated. Last we heard, they were doing well… This was not what we expected.”

Carla Olmstead’s son found the dog in the street about a month before, and she jumped into his car and refused to get out.

Piper seemed to get along with everyone in the family, including the cats and dogs, and the Olmsteads immediately fell in love with the dog.

“She is the most gentle, polite dog we’ve ever met.” She was gentle with our cats and dog. Olmstead wrote on Facebook, “She adores people.”

Piper must have belonged to someone who adored her and well-trained her, they reasoned.

They discovered she had a chip and attempted to contact the owner for the first time, but were unsuccessful. They found Piper’s history with the Browns when they tried again a few weeks later.

The Brown family was overjoyed to be reunited with their old dog, and the Olmstead family was happy to go on a beach trip to Florida in order to return Piper to her previous owners, who now live in Pensacola.

Olmstead posted updates on Piper’s journey to rejoin the Browns, as well as a video of the dog reuniting with her old owners. Because the family has triplets, there will be plenty of opportunities for play!

While she was initially shy and missed the people who had found her, she gradually adjusted to her new old life and was able to be happy again!

Watch the video below to see the adorable reunion!
