A happy ending to an initially heart breaking story!
A homeless man's dog was taken from him in the middle of the night in Hudson, Florida. The dog was a gift from the man's late wife who succumbed to cancer in 2011. She literally gave the dog to her husband so he would remember her.
After the heartbreaking story of the dog robbery grew some legs, friends of the homeless man, who's name is Bryan, helped set up a Facebook page to track Bryan's dog Handover down!
They even raised $1,000 for the reward money! And it totally worked!
Soon afterwards a couple returned the dog to Bryan, and didn't even ask for any money! Although we're not sure how they came into possession of Handover - all that matters is the dog has been reunited with its owner!
After his return, Handover was taken to the vet, and pronounced totally healthy!
Plus, a microchip was installed in Handover, in case he ever goes missing!
In case you were wondering what kind of name Handover is - it's an awesome name!
When Bryan's late wife gave him the pit bull as a gift - she asked him what name he was going to deem the pup.
And Bryan replied: "Hand him over".
