When Emma Drewett received a call that day, she couldn’t believe it. A vet found a Sprocker Spaniel, and when he checked the chip, the woman’s name came out.
Emma rushed to the vet to see if she had finally found her beloved dog after 7 grueling years. When she got there and saw the dog wagging its tail, she realized she had finally found her long-lost pup. But sadly, the vet had some unsettling news about the dog’s past.
Emma Drewett was a 49 years old woman who had loved dogs all her life. She had one since she was a little girl, and when she settled in her own home, she had two lovely Sprocker Spaniels.
Her teenage son loved them too, so when one of them was lost, everyone in the family was devastated.
Flash was a beautiful Sprocker Spaniel that was with the Drewett family until she was 4 years old. The Sprocker Spaniel is a mixed breed between an American Cocker Spaniel and an English Springer Spaniel.
The entire family loved the dog, and no one expected her to disappear so suddenly. And when they found out what really happened to her, it would break their hearts.
One day tragedy struck the Drewett family. While Emma went shopping, she took her dog, Faith as well. She did this often, as the woman didn’t want to leave the dogs alone. The other one was with her son at the time.
While she went into a supermarket, Emma left her dog in her parked car with the air conditioning on to make the pup feel comfortable. That’s when it happened. Two men broke the window of her vehicle and stole Flash.
Emma stormed out of the supermarket yelling, while other people tried chasing the dognappers as well. But it was too late.
The two men who stole the dog got away in a white van. Emma couldn’t believe what had just happened. It was like a movie scene. Who would steal someone’s dog like that? And why? The woman wondered. But if she knew the real reason, her heart would shatter.
Emma and the entire Drewett family were devastated. They all did what they could do best in such a desperate situation. They notified the police and began looking for any clues they could find.
The family put up posters all over the city and kept searching for any type of information. But things weren’t looking too well.
The family took it to the next level when it came to searching for their beloved dog. They shared their plea on social media, hoping to find someone who might have spotted their dog.
The post was shared thousands of times, but it didn’t lead to any news about Flash. The family was heartbroken but had to think of the next steps. None of them had any idea that it would take seven years before they would find something.
The nationwide appeal proved fruitless, and the family’s hopes waned over the following 7 years, with thousands of people helping share the missing posts all over social media – but to no avail. It was a difficult situation for Emma and her son.
Things didn’t look too good for the family, and it was time to maybe let go of the thought of ever finding Flash.
The Drewett Family finally accepted that they would not see their beloved dog again. After grueling months of searching without any results, they realized it was too late.
It was as if the pup had vanished. They couldn’t find a single clue about what really happened to their dog until 7 years later when Emma received the strangest call.
Emma Drewett received a very strange call from a vet’s office one day. A woman said, “I think I found your dog.” Emma’s heart skipped a beat. She didn’t know how to react.
Could this actually be Flash? Would she be reunited with her beloved dog after 7 long years? And that wasn’t everything. The vet said that she should prepare for some terrible news. She jumped in her car and hurried to the vet’s office to see what was happening.
A woman found Flash and treated her like her own dog for six months until a visit to the vet revealed an unsettling truth. The dog had a chip with the owner’s info, which was Emma.
The woman quickly called Emma, notifying her that she had found her dog. After all, hope was lost. The dog was about to go home after 7 years. But first, they had to tell Emma what happened to the dog during those years, which was not easy.
Apparently, the woman who found Flash had bought her from a local dog breeder. This happened 200 miles away from Emma’s town. She never knew what had happened to her pup until now.
The breeder sold her due to her advanced age and no longer being useful to him. Flash was now 11 years old. Emma couldn’t wait to take her back home to the family.
After Flash was stolen, she was used for breeding for 7 years. The breeder sold the puppies, and when she was too old, he also decided to sell her. When Emma heard what her dog had been through, she burst into tears.
Luckily, one woman bought Flash from the breeder and took her from his hands, only to reunite her with her real family later.
When Flash was brought back home, everyone celebrated, and they were in heaven. Emma’s son couldn’t believe what was happening. He never thought he’d see Flash again.
After an ordeal of over 7 years, the lucky dog had found its way home. Flash was shy at first and barely recognized everyone, but she soon realized she was back home and began acting as if she had never left.
During the most recent pandemic, there was a rise in dog breeding for sale. People were more willing to get lockdown companions, so the demand for pups rose. This also caused an increase in dog thefts all over the country, so it is advised to always keep an eye on your pet, especially if it belongs to an expensive breed.
