One of the saddest things in the world is seeing a dog that’s been separated from its owner.
I’ve found several dogs roaming the streets over the years, and fortunately was able to find their owners quickly. There’s always the possibility that a lost dog might be a stray or abused, so it’s important to stop and help.

“I’ve seen the dog a couple weeks before around that area,” Wilson told The Dodo.

Fortunately, the dog had a collar and an ID tag. Wilson wasn’t expecting what he read when he reached for it.
