Rodrigo and his wife were on their way home from a pharmacy when a dog suddenly hopped into their car and immediately went sleeping.
They were sure the dog was tired so they brought him home and let him continue to rest.Rodrigo uploaded his video online and learned he actually has a family living 8 miles away.Rodrigo Coelho went to a pharmacy with his wife in February to get some medicine, but they unexpectedly went home with much more than what they’re supposed to bring.
“I had just come out of a pharmacy and I was in the parking lot,” Rodrigo told The Dodo. “My wife opened the door to enter [the car] and this dog came along as if he knew us.”The stray dog immediately hopped into the car and made himself comfortable as he started to sleep.Based on the pup’s paws and untended nails, Rodrigo was sure he had a rough day as he also smelled as if he just rummaged a garbage bin.Rodrigo and his wife knew they couldn’t just leave him alone and the pup didn’t seem like he wanted to be left behind.
“He settled on the car floor and slept,” Rodrigo said. “He seemed relieved to find a safe place to rest.”
After the couple had arrived home, the pup also went inside and quickly found a comfy spot to settle and continue sleeping. Their other dogs were sure wondering who the new arrival was. When he finally woke up, he suddenly showed them his rowdy style.
“My dogs were frightened because [the dog] is very busy and playful, but there were no fights,” Rodrigo said. “Soon, he was already familiar with the environment and my other dogs accepted him.”
Rodrigo uploaded a video compilation of the pup online and it quickly went viral. Soon, comments were coming from people saying they had also seen the dog around the neighborhood.
It did not take long for Rodrigo to learn that the dog has an owner 8 miles away and his name was Thor.
So he quickly set up a meeting with Thor’s family so they can be reunited.
“Thor was happy to find his family, it was very evident,” Rodrigo said. “He recognized the couple, the car and even his canine friend who came along.”
“It made me sure that the right thing was done and everything turned out well,” he added.
