Pakita was found on the street and eventually brought to El Arca Animal Partido de Mar Chiquita, an animal shelter in Argentina. The volunteers immediately fell in love with her. Especially a volunteer named Silvia Ferreyra. Unfortunately, despite her warm nature, she was always discarded by her adoptive parents in favor of a younger dog.
His reality was brutal. Day after day she sat in her hut. Pakita became depressed, lonely and in many ways collapsed. She was losing a lot of weight and no longer wanted to eat much. The volunteers at El Arca were very worried.
For two long years, volunteers tried their best to find Pakita a home, but nothing worked. Finally, they decided to use social media in their favor and posted a photo of Pakita and her resume on Facebook. But the whole ordeal was no small matter. Pakita hid in a corner trembling and refused to pose for the photo. Finally they managed to get a decent photo.
Pakita looked like she was smiling!
Then a miracle happened!
,,We immediately received a message from a woman saying that the dog belonged to her son and that she was looking for him.” Ferreyra told The Dodo. Ariel Naveira never thought she would see her dog again. After all this time, Ariel had to accept that Pakita would never come home. But her mother called her after seeing her Facebook post. She couldn’t believe it was her. But the next day, she went to the animal shelter, just in case. Volunteers took Pakita to see Ariel, and Ariel immediately knew it was her, but Pakita wasn’t so sure. In the video you can see that she looks hesitant and unsure of herself, but when she looks around she realizes that her dad is right there! Pakita falls to the ground excitedly wagging her tail and waiting to be patted on the tummy by her favorite person in the world. It may have been two years ago, but she knew his smell, his face and his touch. She waited so long and finally he came!
A dream come true!
