Veteran Struggles Until He Is Reunited With His Missing Pitbull

Social media is overflowing with stories of missing dogs.
Isn’t it nice to hear some good news every once in a while? We
especially love it when one of our service members has a story with
a happy ending! This happy ending happened in the heartland of
America and it’s pretty incredible.

A veteran in Kileen, Texas was heartbroken after his Pitbull
went missing. Hades went missing back on October 21st when he left
his yard to play with another dog. The adorable pup with a half
white and half brown face was nowhere to be found.

“He got out of the gate Oct. 21 at 6:35 p.m. to play with
another dog passing by,” Jeff Horn told
. “I haven’t been able to find him since.”

Snuggles That Offer Security And Safety

Horn has difficulty sleeping at night as a result of his service
to his country. Hades offers him a sense of security in the form of
snuggles and endless love. When he went missing, it seemed as if
Horn would never find peace again.

“It’s like he knows. He knows when I’m going to go through
something and he’s just there,” Horn said. “My world is gone
without him here. I need him.”

Hades’ heartbroken dog dad described him as playful and
overflowing with love. His personality was one that couldn’t go

“He’s very playful. He loves to lick. He will lick you to
death,” he said.

The seasons changed and the holidays were quickly approaching.
Sadly, there was still no sign of Hades. Horn kept a close watch on
social media for any signs of hope. Some Ring cameras caught
footage of Hades wandering through yards but there were no
substantial leads. Horn hoped that someone had taken Hades into
their home as the temperatures dropped. Even though he hoped Hades
was warm and cozy in someone’s house, he still wanted him to come
home. Horn needed him to come home.

“He’s needed. He’s really needed. Just, please, give him
back,” Horn pleaded.

Good News Came Just In Time For The Holidays

The good news finally came nearly one month after Hades went
missing. Someone had found Hades and kept him safe and warm. But,
they took off his collar and rabies tag and wanted to keep him as
their own.

A woman learned about Hades after Horn asked the public for
help. She contacted Horn and he was eventually able to convince the
people to give Hades back!

“I want to thank every one of you for helping me out, I
greatly, greatly appreciate it,” Horn told
. “Thank y’all from the bottom of my

Welcome home, Hades! We love it when a story has a happy ending
(and tummy rubs)!
