Man Goes Above & Beyond to Reunite Dog with Owner

April Livingston | March 16th, 2019

A man named Jason Gasparik was driving home one Friday night when something caught his eye on the side of a street. A vehicle was stopped and the driver was running in the grass median in the road. Then, he saw what the commotion was about: there was a dog in the road who was very confused. Jason stopped his car to help catch her, but the large chocolate Lab wasn’t giving in so easily. Another concerned driver and even a police officer stopped to help, but to no avail. It took an hour, but he finally wore the dog out and grabbed her by the neck scruff. Jason took the dog to a 24 hour vet clinic where they scanned her and found a microchip, but it had no name registered. Jason needed to get creative to reunite the dog with her owner.

He brought her home and she was very sweet and jumped right up on his couch; he knew she was a loved dog that someone was missing terribly. He posted on social media, but then took things a step further: he made a sign and stood on the street corner where he had found the dog. He stood out there each day, hoping to spread the word about the lost dog. People began taking pictures of him or even stopping to chat—he told them to post to Facebook or the Nextdoor app to spread the word. After days of standing on the corner, he was desperate to find the owner.

So, he headed out on a Sunday and by 12:30 and then someone on Nextdoor sent him a message. They had found the owner of the dog (whose name was Roxy) and connected Jason with Ed, Roxy’s owner. He had been driving around the area trying to find the missing dog—and Roxy was so excited to see him. Both the man and his dog were so happy to finally be back together again.
