Owners Drive 1,000 Miles to Dog Stolen by Monsters. Watch Tear-Jerking Reunion

Share

Kidnappings are some of the most terrible crimes for families to deal with. They offer no closure, leaving loved ones caught in an emotional lurch — even when the missing member isn’t human.

Dara Prak of Houston, Texas, utterly understands the feeling. Last March, his pit bull Titan mysteriously vanished from his backyard.



It wasn’t as if the animal had simply run away. See, Prak had found Titan’s collar lying by itself in the middle of fenced-in area where the pooch stayed, evidence that someone must’ve swiped him.

Prak did everything a devoted animal lover could. He combed the streets around his house, talked about Titan’s disappearance on social media, and visited animal shelters time and again.

Yet as days turned into weeks, his worry fomented into fear. “I honestly thought I would never see my baby boy again,” he wrote.

Then the miraculous happened: Prak got a phone call saying someone had found Titan — in South Carolina.

Titan had been discovered walking along a road in the Palmetto State, his stocky frame terribly bruised. No one knew how he’d ended up there, but he was alive.

“I got that phone call and knew, I just knew I had to get to South Carolina,” Prak told KTRK. It didn’t matter that his dog was almost 1,000 miles away.

Prak and his girlfriend Kara Hills hopped into the car and started driving. An emotional video captured the moment he first saw his beloved Titan again.



In it, Prak clasped his hands over his mouth as the cone-wearing dog limped out into the waiting area.

One of Titan’s eyes was badly bruised, but he sniffed Hill and Prak before nuzzling up to his owner, his good eye closing in canine bliss.

“We are beyond grateful for officer Jennifer Cavanaugh at the Spartanburg Animal Control, vets, and assistants at the Greenville County Animal Care and all friends, family, and supporters who have been with us and made this reunion possible,” Prak wrote on Facebook. “Thank you, everyone.”
