Losing a dog, even for a day, can be a nightmare. And it’s even more terrifying when you depend on your dog for medical help.
On July 3 in Ohio, a German Shorthair Pointer named Gunter went missing after bolting away when he got scared of fireworks. His family and friends searched the whole vicinity, but no one found him.
The situation was dire as the missing dog is not only just a pet dog; he also serves as a seizure alert dog for his dad, David Barlet. Barlet was diagnosed with epilepsy and, thus, had his dog trained to alert him about an upcoming seizure attack.
The family made every physical and online effort possible to get their beloved pooch back. They offered rewards and contacted the cops to help them recover Gunter. It took two days before they received some news about the missing dog.
An 11-year-old boy, who lives close to Barlet’s neighborhood, heard noises from the nearby bushes. Out of curiosity, he went to find out and found the scared Gunter with his leash stuck in the bushes. Most probably, he had been stuck there during the entire two days he was missing.
Luckily, Gunter was still close to his home, but his leash left him stranded in the wild. The boy’s parents immediately contacted Barlet to let him know of the good news.
Gunter made the fastest dog run ever when he saw his dad coming to him. It’s not easy to tell who was more excited between the two. But surely, they’re both grateful for the little boy.
The boy and his family didn’t even know Barlet and his dog personally. But thanks to them, Gunter was reunited with his beloved fur dad. According to Barlet, he gets emotional every time he sees the kid.
