When this grieving woman finally reunited with her dog after more than two years, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. Despite the fact that her Husky had vanished and was nowhere to be found, Kameroun Mares never gave up hope. Her tale, thankfully, has a good conclusion!
Semper Fidelis was first introduced to Kameroun when he was a puppy. Due to a horrible sort of cancer, the woman was struggling for her life, and all she wanted was a fuzzy pet to soothe her. The dog’s Latin name, which means “always faithful,” reflects his personality: he is always faithful and incredibly affectionate. He was the dog Kameroun had always wished for.
The cute couple appeared to be inseparable, and everything appeared to be in order. However, in 2016, something terrible occurred. Kameroun had to fly to California for treatment, and it would have been impossible for her to bring her puppy with her, so she left Semper in the care of her roommate. But, regrettably, she received a call immediately afterwards informing her that her Semper had gone missing. The poor woman’s life has been turned upside down.
As you might expect, Kameroun had done everything she could to locate Semper. She posted notices on social media, distributed leaflets across town, and even solicited assistance from her friends and neighbors, but Semper was nowhere to be seen. Despite this, the woman never gave up hope and continued her quest for him. She eventually decided to employ a private detective. It’s when things took an unexpected turn.
“While in California, I kept looking for him for a year, placing posters on pet sites, phoning 15 vets near where I used to live about him, calling the humane organizations about him, shelter,” Kameroun told THE DODO. “When I approached Ana Campos for extra assistance, she advised me to double-check her AKC Reunite chip. So, in May 2017, she went to the humane society, and they checked online… That’s when she found that a lady had put her name to Semper’s chip a year before, on April 11, 2016.”
Semper was apparently microchipped for the second time, but without a prior check to see whether he already had one. The cute Husky was then put up for sale online for $200. He was practically nowhere to be located as a result of this. After more than two years of sorrow and hope, Kameroun and Semper were set to reunite in a heartfelt reunion.
Kameroun explained, “I regard him as an extension of myself and my heart.” “I’m so pleased he’s back in my arms!” Take a look at the dramatic scene below!
In the end, Kameroun found out that was her ex-roommate the one that sold the dog, in the firs place. “He was stolen and sold by her roommate 2 1/2 years ago,” Ana Campos wrote on Facebook. “She was told he was lost on April 30, 2016. But on April 11, 2016 the buyer added their name to his AKC Reunite ‘registered chip’. They registered this registered chip on Petkey pets instead. Petkey pets did not bother to see if he was chipped already.”
