If you’re a dedicated dog owner, you’ll know that losing your beloved pooch would be one of the worst things imaginable. In fact, we’re tearing up even thinking about it...
Leo the dog went missing
Leo, a super fluffy, friendly dog, went missing from his own home around two months ago. His family, who live in Turkey, searched everywhere but despite their endless hard work, couldn't find him.
Understandably, they were absolutely heartbroken.
Butit wasn’t just Leo who disappeared - two other family dogs went missing, too - which the family suspect was the work of a local dognapper.
But then the impossible happened
Just as the family gave up hope, a miracle happened.
Leo’s owner’s son, Sertaç Araç, was walking around in a town around 60 miles away from home when something caught his eye - a dog which looked strangely similar to Leo.
And that’s because it was Leo! The dog was sitting outside a cafe, looking a little worse-for-wear after living on the streets.
"I took a picture and sent it to my mother and father," Araç told The Dodo. "I was in doubt."
And now Leo is back with his family
After seeing the photo, Araç’s parents drove straight over. We won’t give too much more away, but as you’ll see in the video, it was definitely their dog.

After being dognapped and living life on the streets, Leo is now back where he belongs,with his loving family. Sadly, the other two dogs are yet to be found.
"We're so happy Leo is home. I will look carefully everywhere I visit in hopes we find [the other two dogs]," Araç said. "My father and mother will continue to search as long as they can, because they see them as their sons and love them."
