Here at the Wamiz office, we can’t even begin to imagine how awful it must be to lose a pet - they’re part of the family, after all.
But Leonel, an 11-year-old boy from a small town in Argentina, is experiencing that heartbreak right now. The sweet young lad suffers from autism and thinks of his fluffy companion as his best friend in the world. Leonel’s family adopted the dog as a source of mental support for their boy - and they've been inseperable ever since.
Tito disappeared out of thin air
Leonel’s dog, Tito the grey poodle, went missing back on the 7th May whilst out for a walk.
“We left home as usual with Tito and the other three dogs. Everyone used to walk without a leash because they knew they had to stay around. But when I called them back home, everyone was there except Tito. Within seconds, we realised he was lost, so we started looking for him," Leonel’s Mum said to Wamiz Italy.
The family posted photos throughout the area in the hope that someone would spot their beloved pet. But after a month, he’s still nowhere to be seen.
So Leonel is offering his bike as a reward
Leonel refuses to give up on his best friend and has decided to offer his bike up to anyone who can bring his four-legged friend home.
In desperate notes and videos shared on social media, Lionel says:
"A month without seeing you Tito, I miss you, nobody finds you, everyone asks me if I found you and I said no,".
"I don't mind giving the bike away , as long as Tito returns,"
We wish Leonel all the luck in the world for finding his best friend.
