An Alabama Dog Mom Reunites With Her Long Lost Dog in West Point
WEST POINT, Miss. (WCBI) – An Alabama dog owner reunites with her dog in the Golden Triangle, two years after she went missing.
An unforgettable day for a dog mom and her fur baby.
The dog, Lady Chanel, was found last week in West Point.
That’s nearly 200 miles away from her home in Birmingham, Alabama.
West Point -Clay County Animal Shelter employees made this day possible.
Tuesday is the first time since 2017 that Quintara Hammonds and her long lost pup, Lady Chanel, have seen each other.
“Finally, after two years. Finally, finally, finally.”
“I never thought that I was going to get her back and it was just, it was literally breathtaking because this was my baby and so I was like hopefully, she remembers me. Hopefully, she’s okay.”
Hammond adopted Lady Chanel from a humane society in Birmingham.
“She was incredible. Everything I needed, as far as laying up in the bed with me when I was having bad days, when we would go out to the park and meet other dogs, go with me to get my daughter. She went every day. We have drop off and she was the dog that was in the drop off.”
Last week, Hammond received an unexpected call from an unexpected place.
“The little dog was rescued from the side of the road along with another dog, who apparently is not in anyway connected, but we managed to get both of them and one of the things that we do as part of our intake procedure is check for microchips,” says West Point-Clay County Animal Shelter Director Lisa Henley.
“I called everybody. I was like you all will not believe this! My daddy was like, ‘What are you talking about?’ And my mom was screaming. She was like, ‘Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh!’.”
If you’re wondering how Lady Chanel ended up in West Point, so is everyone else, but we do know how this mystery ends, a dog mom and her furry friend are back together.
“It touches all of us. You can’t help but picture yourself in that situation. Your own pet disappears and there’s a chance of a lifetime to get that pet back that was actually stolen, according to the owner, is just phenomenal.”
The other dog that was found with Lady Chanel on the side of the highway is named Will and he is 8-years old.
He’s now up for adoption at the West Point-Clay County Animal Shelter.
