Indiana Emotional Support Dog Loki Reunited With Owner Samantha Powers After He Missed 2 Years Ago

An Indiana woman shed tears of joy after being reunited with her emotional support dog who went missing two years ago.

Samantha Powers and her puppy Loki could barely contain their excitement when she arrived at the Fort Wayne Animal Care and Control Center Friday after receiving a call that her dog had been found, WPTA reported.

The happy pitbull jumped for joy, planting sloppy kisses on Powers during their heartbreaking reunion.

Loki had disappeared while Powers was away from home two years ago, and after months of searching, she thought she would never see her faithful K-9 classmate again.

“I kind of lost hope after a while,” she told the outlet.

Her mother, Barbara Powers, said her daughter “lost her mind” when she learned Loki had been found after two long, grueling years.

Loki was found in the Fort Wayne area.

Luckily, because he was microchipped, animal control was able to immediately contact Powers to share the good news.

“My baby got her pet back,” Barbara Powers said, fighting back tears at the thought of her daughter getting her emotional support animal back.

“Animals are not just animals. They are part of your family.

The whereabouts of the missing puppy for two years are unknown, but he appears to have been well taken care of during his prolonged absence from his owner.

Powers and his mother said Loki might never have been found without his microchip.

“The microchip has been a lifesaver,” Powers said.

“Without that, I wouldn’t have gotten my boy back.” I really encourage people to get it.

“I think everyone who owns any animal, whether it’s indoors or outdoors, it doesn’t matter what it is, microchips their puppies, their cats, their rats, to their birds”, advocated Barbara Powers in favor of other animal owners.

Loki has since adjusted to being at home with Powers, sharing that she couldn’t be happier to have him under the same roof again.

Her mother shared that her daughter had been struggling since Loki disappeared, but seeing her reunite with Loki at the shelter on Friday put all three of them in pure happiness.

A microchip is a small electronic device injected under a dog’s skin using a needle.

It is usually placed between the shoulder blades.

The device is about the size of a grain of rice, contains no battery and is not harmful to animals.

Most chips are designed to last around 25 years.

Pet microchipping typically costs between $15 and $60 and is an affordable way for owners to have peace of mind knowing that if their pets go missing and are found, they can be reunited.

The chips are not GPS trackers and must be scanned to find their identification number, which will disclose owner information when animals are surrendered to an animal shelter or veterinary clinic.
