A woman named Debbie Campbell and her family were devastated when their favorite dog disappeared. Someone in their home located in the Bay Area in California mistakenly left the door to their home open, and the dog escaped. They were terrified they would never locate him again.
Brody, a French Bulldog, is more than a treasured family member and an important part of the family as he is Debbie’s emotional support animal. She looks to him for stability, and his company helps her cope with stress.
So when Brody went missing, Debbie’s family went to great lengths to locate Brody. They plastered his photographs across their area. They conducted an intensive search within their town, visiting shelters and clinics. And, of course, they shared images of the dog on a regular basis on social media.
A few weeks after the tiny puppy vanished, a stranger contacted Debbie and informed her that he believed he could have her emotional support dog. Additionally, the call was made from Tijuana, Mexico, a distance of more than 500 miles from where Debbie lived.
According to the caller, a man named Benjamin Gonzalez, he purchased the dog for $1,000 from a street vendor. Benjamin was so pleased with his purchase that he showed it off to his relatives, who also lived in the Bay Area. Those family members happened to see Brody’s photos and stated that Benjamin’s new dog resembled the missing pet.
Benjamin’s relatives sent images to him as they were sure that it was the same dog. As a result, he dialed Debbie’s number. Benjamin decided to return the missing Frenchie once they all determined that the dog was identical to the one in the photographs.
Benjamin’s fiancée drove all the way to San Diego to meet Debbie’s son. The family refunded him for what he paid for the dog and even added an additional thousand dollars as a treat. Despite the fact that Benjamin had not requested it, the thankful family insisted.
