Twixx, Linda Harmon’s beloved dog, got lost about two years ago. The mischievous dog is an escape expert who dug huge holes in the fence. He bears a scar on his skull after one attempt to escape.
Linda’s husband put up metal posts around the garden fence to keep Twixx inside. Unable to find him, they are confused and unable to explain why his dog is missing.
The family immediately began searching. They posted photos of Twixx on social media and posted notices throughout the neighborhood in an attempt to quickly locate their dog.
After seeing the dog’s Facebook post, a woman texted Linda and provided her with a picture of a dog with a scar on his head that looks exactly like Twixx.
“I’m sorry to give you this, but I found your Twixx,” she said. This is a photo of the man being hit by the side of the road.
Linda called the microchip company to have the device removed after assuming her dog was dead, but she was unable to do so.
“In my heart I never really believed it. You have to drop that, my wife and I told me. Your tears are for him. But I swore I would never have another dog, and for the next two years I didn’t. »
Recently, she received a call from the Mobile County Animal Welfare Center asking if she’d ever had a microchip pet while hanging out with her church group. Linda recounts that she began to cry and her church friends approached her with concern, but her tears were tears of joy.
The shelter made the transition easier by keeping the dog behind the door while she talked to it. The woman worries that her dog won’t recognize her after all this time and will feel uncomfortable or scared in her presence.
