Living alone can be hard for some of us, but imagine how hard it was for a service dog named Lola to live alone in the dark woods. Lola is a service dog who helps her owner, Debra, with her epilepsy. The pup is known to be gentle and calm, so her fur parent never considered the thought of her pup running away.
Lola went missing when the family visited some friends living in Illinois. They allowed Lola to chill in the yard while they bonded with their friends, but the pup somehow escaped. The couple started looking for Lola everywhere but couldn’t find the pup until they were forced to go back home to Michigan.
Debra couldn’t stop thinking about where her pup could be or what she was doing, so she made sure to join all the groups of Illinois lost dogs in hopes of finding her. Debra also traveled with her husband, Steven, every weekend to Illinois to search for the pup. But every time they rode back home to Michigan without their dear pup, Debra started losing hope little by little until she and her husband accepted that they might never see Lola again. As months passed by, Debra adopted another service pup named Maddox.
After three years of losing Lola, Debra got a call from a microchip company, informing her that they found Lola miles away from where she went missing. Debra couldn’t believe what she heard and immediately started crying. All she could think of was that her beloved pup is alive!
It turned out that Lola was taken care of by a kind family for a while. The family patiently tried to get close to Lola to gain her trust with food, and after a year, Lola finally opened up to them. They brought the pup to Dupage County Animal Services, where they were able to locate her owner.
Finally, Lola is back in the loving arms of Debra. Debra said that Lola is still as lovely as ever. The pup even gets along with her new fur sibling, Maddox. Thanks to the loving family who took care of Lola and Debra’s wise decision to put a microchip on her pup, Lola was able to reunite with her family.
