Heartwarming Moment as Lost Husky Reunites With Owner After 2 Months

On Sunday, a 9-month-old Siberian Husky named Snow was reunited with her owner after going missing two months prior. The video of the reunion shared by the Miami-Dade Police Department shows an excited Snow tackling her owner with tail wags and puppy kisses.

"Last night, our Midwest District Sergeant Grisell Fernandez was able to find Snow and reunite her with her owner!" the department said in its Facebook post. "The puppy kisses say it all."

Two months ago, Snow managed to break loose, run from home and into the street, a spokesperson for the Miami-Dade Police Department told Newsweek. But she didn't make it very far on her own. Footage from nearby Ring cameras and other surveillance cameras caught someone in a car pulling up to Snow, taking her and driving off. Police used this footage to identify the vehicle, track down its owner and find Snow. But finding Snow wasn't as easy as it sounds.

According to the spokesperson for the police department, cases like these often take time to solve. Though the police had footage of the car, he said identifying the car and making contact with its owner can be difficult for a variety of reasons. Oftentimes, police find that the last known phone number has been disabled. Or, the last known address is outdated. Sometimes, the person driving the car isn't its owner, and police have to track down the person who borrowed the vehicle.

In this case, in particular, it did take investigators some time to both identify the car and make contact with its owner, though it is not known which part took the bulk of the time. But the police's determination ultimately led to a happy ending for Snow.

Though the puppy has been safely returned to her owner, the police department's work isn't done. "We have to investigate it to make sure there's no criminal activity involved," the spokesperson told Newsweek. As of now, no arrests have been made.

Though the footage gathered clearly shows a person taking the dog, police cannot immediately prove criminal activity because the dog was loose. "We have to prove intent," the spokesperson said. Police have to determine if the person who took Snow did so with the intention of keeping her safe until her owner was found, or if they had darker intentions.
