This started out as a heartbreakingly sad story, but don't worry, there is a VERY happy ending!

A man named Alfred went out for an ordinary walk with his precious pup Tabitha. Unfortunately, Alfred suffers from Alzheimer's and when he didn't return home, his wife went out looking for him. Fortunately, she found Alfred, but Tabitha was not with him.

"I had a decision to make and it was either get my husband or my dog. I couldn't get both," she told Fox 4 News about her search. She did go back out looking for Tabitha after she got Alfred home safe and secure - and she was unable to locate her.

She continued her search and put out over 300 fliers around the neighborhood. The story got the attention of the local news station and they went out and they interviewed Kelly and Alfred for this segment.

Someone had found Tabitha and had temporarily taken her in while they tried to locate her family. Miraculously, they were watching TV when that news report came on and Tabitha recognized her owners on the screen.

"FOX 4 immediately received a call from the person who found her. She says Tabitha perked up when Kelly and Alfred appeared in the story," they report. "The woman realized the dog's name was Tabitha by the way she responded."

Thanks to the good samaritan and the news report, Tabitha has been reunited with her family and is back home with them now. "We were worried sick," Kelly said. "We're just so happy to have her back."
