A newly adopted Golden Retriever travels 64 km in 27 days to return to its previous owners.
No love compares to a dog's love, so the saying goes. A golden retriever who had to be given up by his owners is an example of this; he ran away from his new house and travelled back 40 miles to his previous home.
Cooper the dog sprang out of the car as soon as it reached County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, according to a Metro story. It then disappeared for about a month and travelled back to its original owners from Tobermore, County Londonderry, a distance of approximately 40 miles (64 kilometres).
The canine had reportedly been spotted in several areas and loitering around residences, according to the missing pets charity Lost Paws NI, which got information about it on April 22. Another caller reported spotting Cooper heading towards his former house five days later. The dog, they claimed, travelled by itself, largely at night, through backwoods and along major roads.
Cooper is a smart boy, according to a Lost Paws NI spokeswoman. He returned to a familiar location on the basis of instinct. I'll never understand how he did it, but he succeeded. Nothing but tenacious determination and that amazing nose, no food, shelter, or assistance.
"We had looked everywhere, day and night, and we had found him, but now we know he was almost back in the region where he'd started before he was handed to the dog pound. We had tracked him back to a position where we lost him again. Over the course of 27 days, Cooper travelled across major A-roads, forests, fields, and country roads to return home from a place he had never been before. We couldn't be happier to have been
Cooper is "safe now," according to new owner Nigel Fleming, who also noted that Cooper is "eating little meals to build up his muscle and put some weight back on slowly."
"Even when he was gone, the wonderful aid I was offered renewed my faith in humanity, and today, with him here at my side and with Molly, I don't really have the words to adequately express the gratitude I feel," continued Mr. Fleming.
Cooper is adjusting well to his new home life with his sister and is taking advantage of certain home comforts, according to a representative for Lost Paws NI. When we went to see him after he was captured, he was cosy next to the fire, content, and loved. Nigel, his new owner, is one of the most devoted owners we've had the pleasure of meeting, I'd like to say. When we were moving, Nigel never stopped fighting, never stopped seeking counsel, and never stopped restocking the food bowls. This tale teaches tenacity, loyalty, positivism, fighting for what you want in life, and never giving up.
