While her owners renovate their house in June, Ping An, a one-year-old Golden Retriever, was brought to the house of a good family friend in Nantong, about two hours away from her home in Qidong.
The family thought that Ping wouldn’t return for good
The setup was meant to be temporary, as they will take her back once the remodeling is done. But they heard, almost four months later, that Ping An flees and gone missing for good. Heartbroken, the family felt they would never find their favorite pet.
What they were unaware of is that the homesick dog was on her journey to return home.
Ping An’s walking journey back home
For days, the families had no clue where Ping An was. But it seems like the loyal dog knows precisely the right way home. She was in bad condition after two weeks of cycling, but she was close to home though.
If some kind people had not come to help her out, she could have made it there independently. Luckily, staff noticed the tired canine outside of an office building. They gave Ping An food as the dog also looks starving.
They brought her in and took care of her wounds. Then, in the attempt to locate her family, they shared pictures of her on social media. Just within a day, Ping An’s family quickly noticed the post.
They recognized the dog immediately, even though she had lost some weight. They raced to the site and held evidence of ownership, then pick her up. Fortunately, after the doctor examined the dog, Ping An is now back home and continuously healing from her injury.
After knowing how loyal their dog is, the family promised that they would make sure to take good care of Ping An, and she will be with them for eternity.
