The mushy reunion

In their sweet reunion story, MAS said that Anthony had undergone a lot of devastating events in his life. Although he doesn't have a home or food, he has what everyone needs, a best friend. Anthony's best friend is four legged, with a tail, named Bobo. The two share an inseparable bond and Anthony tries his best to find food for his pal. Weeks ago, Anthony woke up in the morning and could not find Bobo. Following this, the artist contacted his friends who put up signs to report in case anyone finds the missing dog. On September 12, a dog that looked similar to the description was identified by Emily, who is a memeber of Memphis Animal Services. She remembered the posters and dialed the contact number mentioned on it. Within minutes, Anthony came to find his lost friend. The duo's reunion was recorded and posted by animal services.
