A few weeks ago, Siberian Husky Yukki was living happily with his owner, Marina, in Bucha, Ukraine.
But when bombs started to hit the city, Yukki got scared and ran away. His family searched and searched for him, but it was too dangerous to stay in Bucha. They were forced to leave their home without their beloved dog.
Husky separated from his owners
Yukki eventually came back to his home, but his family was nowhere to be seen. Thankfully, neighbours who had stayed behind started to take care of Yukki. But with the frequent bombings, Yukki was taking fright often, coming and going as a result.
One day, a Ukrainian soldier named Andriy Smirnov spotted the Husky wandering around alone. Finding the dog to be beautiful, he decided to post a picture of him on his Facebook. He captioned the photo:
A stroke of luck
The post quickly became viral and was shared over 7000 times. Thanks to its popularity, it ended up showing up on Marina’s timeline! Yukki’s worried owner could hardly believe her luck! She quickly got in touch with the soldier and arranged to meet him so she could get her dog back.
On April 12th, Marina and Yukki were finally reunited, and hopefully, they’ll never be separated again! The beautiful reunion was captured on video, and brings people a little hope in these dark times.
