When Sandy Hernandez’ two Siberian Huskies went missing, he was devastated. They managed to hop the fence in their yard and Hernandez spent the entire weekend searching for them, but to no avail.But little did he know, his two fur-babies were safe. While he was looking for them, they wound up getting taken in by Miami-Dade Animal Services after someone found them on the streets.
Thinking they were strays, the shelter used them as doggy models for a photoshoot with Ocean Drive Magazine to highlight pet adoption.
Hernandez had posted flyers all over the neighborhood in the hopes that someone would see them and recognize his beloved pups. That’s when he received a call from the man who had found them and took them to the shelter. The man explained that he thought they were strays and told Hernandez to go to Animal Services.
When Hernandez arrived, he saw his two beautiful pooches posing for the cameras during the photoshoot.
“That’s my dog, man! That’s my dog,” he yelled, as he ran up to the shoot crying. He immediately hugged his dogs, who were equally as happy to see their owner again.
The pups, 3-year-old Ragnar and 11-month-old Kloud are now back at home with Hernandez. Hernandez also decided to get both of them microchipped to avoid situations like this in the future.
For most people, dogs are not just our pets, they are our family members. When you bring a dog into your life, things just seem to get a lot more exciting. There’s few things that are better than coming home after a long day of work and having your beloved furbaby happily greet you at the door. While we love our pups and they love us back unconditionally, there are a few “annoying habits” that our dogs may not really like.
Using words more than body language- Of course, dogs can understand a select few words, but we all know that they can’t comprehend every single thing we are saying. Because of this, dogs tend to watch our body language to understand what we are trying to tell them.
Keeping eye contact– Looking straight into a dog’s eyes without blinking, especially a dog you don’t know, may come across as an act of assertion or dominance. If you’re meeting a new dog for the first time, it’s important not to make strong eye contact right off the bat.
