Boy Reunites With Dog Eight Months After He Went Missing

For one 11-year-old boy from Argentina, his rescue dog, Jack, was not just a pet but a best friend. When Jack went missing one day eight months ago, he refused to believe that Jack was gone forever.

When Jack first went missing, Rocco Risso and his family did everything to try and find him. But as the months passed without finding any trace, everyone but Rocco started to give up hope that they would find him. “I can’t explain how much Rocco cried and missed him for all those months,” Rocco’s mother, Romi, said. “But he always believed that Jack would reappear.”

Yet eight months after Jack disappeared, a family friend spotted him wandering around a gas station in the area. They immediately called Romi with the incredible news, and she started planning a special surprise for Rocco to reunite him with his best friend.

“I told Rocco that I had a gift for him,” Romi said. “When I called him to the front yard and he saw his friend Jack, I felt he was reborn. He kept saying, ‘I knew it.’ Rocco is so happy, and he and Jack are closer than ever. Rocco always says that the most important things in life are pets and family. For him, they are one and the same.”
