After slipping the leash, for two long years he managed to survive by scrounging food on the streets of Rhode Island.
Bosco a Beagle mix, somehow slipped his leash, after gaining some newfound freedom he decided to go on an adventure. However, he got lost and couldn’t find his way home.
“He was leashed in the back yard and somehow he just slipped off the leash,” said Sheilah Graham, volunteer with Missing Dogs of Massachusetts.
After losing his home and his family, Bosco had no choice but to revert to instinct to survive. He found the perfect place in an area near local restaurants where he managed to find a regular source of food in the dumpsters nearby.
After learning about a stray dog haunting the neighborhood, Sheilah left out a cage and luckily, one night, Bosco took the bait.
It didn’t take long for Sheilah to track down Bosco’s owner, Bill, and she gave him a call. She asked “Hey Bill, do you recognize this voice?” and Bill was stunned to hear Bosco barking in the background. “He’s a really remarkable dog, obviously,” said Bill of Bosco’s tenacity.
As Bill has moved out of state, she also arranged for the two to have a quick chat on FaceTime. As Bosco was too old to fly and Bill is disabled, Sheilah volunteered to drive the 2000 of miles to reunite the pair in person.
I’m so glad to see Bosco is on his way back to his family after his long, rough time away from home!
