Bilbo, his Generous Family, and a Stolen Dog Found

This is our new friend Bilbo!

Bilbo's family found our website while researching the
breed of puppy that Bilbo might be.
They found Bilbo as a stray while on vacation in the
North of Israel. His new family quickly realized that they were
going to be bringing more back from this family vacation
than a simple t-shirt. After checking with the local vet
to ensure that no one was looking for him,
Bilbo went home with his new family! WOOOHOOO!

Bilbo and his best friend Michal

Bilbo snuggled on the step using a shoe as a pillow.

We believe that Bilbo is a Border Collie/Great Pyrenees mix.
What do you think?
Bilbo is very very kind, sweet natured, friendly and a true
pacifist. He can make friends with the most aggressive dogs - he just
charms them.

Bilbo would make a wonderful therapy dog. So far his
therapeutic effect has been very noticeable on Maggie, their 12 years old
golden, who started a totally new life since he arrive - she is much more
vital and happy, and lost about 6 pounds as a result of playing with him.

Maggie, Bilbo... and the mystery dog.

The Mystery Dog is a pure bred yellow Labrador who
was surviving in the outskirts of Bilbo's families suburb in Israel,
badly injured, but would not let anyone come near her.
It took Bilbo's dad 6  weeks to form a first contact with her -
he would leave for her water and food every night,
until one day she finally let him touch her and feed her.

After another day she came home with Bilbo's dad,
and it was like totally changing her operating system:
once home, she resumed to being a family dog.

Her scars from some bad injury on her right thigh tell a story; 
- they can't guess what she has been through.

She is spayed and has an identification chip.

On November 2 they found out that the mystery dog is actually
registered with a local vets inactive files. The dog's name is "Yellow".
The last time she paid a visit to his clinic was 4 years ago. 

Bilbo's dad contacted the owners and they are stunned to find out she was found.
Yellow was stolen 3 years ago!

On her way home, Yellow recognizes her street and heads straight to the gate of her house.

Yellow reunited with her family!

When Michal and Bilbo's dad get ready to leave, 
Yellow hides deep under the coffee table,
to make it clear that she is staying! 

Thank you, Bilbo's family!
Your generosity and compassion for
others makes our world a better place to live in.

Hi! We just found our way over here from another of our blog-friends. That is a wonderful story of re-uniting a dog with it's family. Amazing that they don't forget the place where they were loved, isn't it?

Wow! Yellow's story was just inspiring. Sounds like miracles DO happen! Last time, we read another story that Beagle has been lost or maybe stolen for more than 6 years. Later, she was reunited with her family. Her family missed her so much but I don't think the Beagle remembered much becoz she was stolen when she was a puppy. But nonetheless, they are one happy family once again!

What a wonderful story. Bilbo looks a little like Foley. He is English Springer Spaniel. He probably isn't as goofy though.
