This touching story is reminiscent of “The Incredible Journey” and demonstrates how loving and loyal dogs truly are. Ping An, a golden retriever, was living with her loving family in Qidong, Jiangsu, China, and loving every minute of it. But one day, her family informed her that she would be living somewhere else for a while. Ping An’s family needed to renovate their home, and they planned to house her with some of their friends to keep her safe while the work was being done. They hopped in their car and drove for two hours to their friend’s house.
Ping An would be safe and well-cared for there, and she would be able to return home in a few months. Her family said their final goodbyes to their beloved daughter and returned home to begin the renovations.
In her new, temporary home, Ping An received all the love and care she required. Despite this, she couldn’t help but feel extremely homesick. She longed for her family and couldn’t stop thinking about them. After four long months, she simply couldn’t take it any longer. As a result, she left.
The family’s friends were understandably upset to learn that Ping An had vanished. They were concerned about her safety and suspected she was lost somewhere. They couldn’t believe Ping An was actually on her way back home. Ping An walked and walked and walked for more than two weeks. She had only one thought: she needed to get home to her family. Nothing could stop her, and Ping An had walked over 62 miles by the end of it.
At this point, the sweet girl was limping and bleeding, severely malnourished, and completely exhausted. She was determined to keep walking but was rescued by kind people who tracked down her owners. Ping An was then taken to the vet, where he, fortunately, recovered completely.
Her family was astounded by her commitment and loyalty and promised never to send her away again. Nothing is more important to Ping An than her family, and she has demonstrated how far she will go to be with them. We’re thrilled that Ping Ann is doing well and has been reunited with her family, and we know she and her family must feel truly blessed to be so adored by such a wonderful dog.
