Aaron Morris and his service dog, Jolene, had just moved from Michigan to North Carolina once they pulled into a
Dollar General on Friday.
Morris left his pup outside while he quickly picked up a couple of things at the shop. But what he didn’t realize was that somebody had been following him.
When he returned after a couple of brief minutes, his car was gone, alongside nearly everything he owned, including Jolene. it had been the primary time in six years he’d been without her, and he didn’t know what to try to do.
“This was my guardian spirit. My ally. I told her everything. We did everything [together],” Morris wrote on Facebook. “I need her back in my arms … this is often destroying my heart.”
Morris didn’t care about getting the car back, or his wallet, or his phone — all he wanted was Jolene. But because the days passed, he began to lose hope.
Nearby, at the Morristown Hamblen Humane Society in Tennessee, a brown Lab/pit bull mix was dropped off by an honest Samaritan. She’d been found as a stray wandering the streets, but the shelter workers noticed she was still wearing a pink collar and tag.
The tag read “Jolene,” but once they tried the telephone number, it didn’t undergo. therefore the shelter posted a photograph of the pup on Facebook. Morris’s phone had been stolen alongside his car, but because of the social media site, Jolene and Morris found one another again.
