This Georgia couple had something to be incredibly thankful for at Thanksgiving; the return of their beloved pet dog.While the dog’s name is Bear, he’s small and docile and oh so cute. Years ago, they rescued him but two years ago, he was startled during a car accident and ran off into the woods.

Kelly and Ted searched for him to no avail. But then in October 2014, two ladies who live in Marietta discovered Bear in a yard for used auto parts. They spent 13 months trying to catch him, but it didn’t work until they finally built him a pen. Then they used his microchip tag to find his original owners, Kelly and Ted. The family was reunited just in time for the holidays.
