Aisha Nieves of Allentown, Pennsylvania, started browsing the adoption page of the Lehigh County Humane Society (LCHS) website on June 18, hoping to find a new pet for her two sons.
At that time, she saw the tan pitbull and Rottweiler Kuvo, which had been lost two years ago.
“I thought,’Wait, it can’t be him,'” Nieves told The Morning Call. But then she noticed the small scars on his eyes when he was injured at the door when he was a child.
When he was only seven weeks old, she had Kuvo for the first time.She named him after the arrogant but loyal lion cub, with a scar on his eye DisneyAnimation Lion king Sequel movie.
From 2014 to May 2019, she has been taking care of Kuvo. In that month, he crawled out of a hole in front of her house, a hole left by a driver who hit it. When she came home one night, Kuvo was not there to greet her with his usual kisses and hugs.
“I had been pregnant with my youngest son for four months,” she said. “I have a lot of emotions running through me. I was crying, thinking about the worst, thinking that someone kidnapped or hurt him. I was just destroyed. He experienced everything by my side, heartbroken, ups and downs, and now he is gone . It’s too hard to accept.
After residents found Kovu in someone’s yard, she hardly realized that the local humanitarian society had picked up Kovu.
A family adopted Kovu in October 2019. But facing deportation, the family sent him back to the shelter on June 12, in good physical condition, Deirdre Snyder, LCHS development director, told the publication.
LCHS has renamed Kovu to “Ash”. But when Nieves saw his photo on the organization’s adoption page, she knew it was her lost dog. Nieves immediately contacted LCHS. The team told her that to get him back, she would need to bring photos of her and Kovu and adoption fees.
Nieves said that when LCHS brought Kovu out to meet her, he immediately began to smile and wag his tail.
She told WFMZ-TV: “I automatically go to the floor, like to get down, and get ready because I know he will pounce on me.” “As soon as he came, he started screaming, screaming and yelling. “
In it’s Facebook On the page, LCHS posted a picture of Nieves and Kovu reuniting.
“After seeing his long-lost mother, Cou, who was previously shy and scared, uttered the most exciting scream we have ever heard!” LCHS wrote.
After Kovu disappeared, Nieves said that she felt part of herself was missing. She would look at old photos of dogs and cry. Now Kovu went home with her, and she said that he felt like he never left. The two had just celebrated the dog’s seventh birthday, and she vowed never to lose him again.
