The man, known as Dwight, was watching a morning broadcast by FOX6 News Milwaukee when he noticed his dog named Payday, during the Adopt-A-Pet segment on July 21. It was revealed that the long lost canine was being looked after by The Wisconsin Humane Society, describing the pup with an underbite and brown fur.

After hearing the description and seeing footage of Payday, Dwight quickly called the TV station to confirm that it was his dog.

Both owner and pet were quickly reunited at the animal rescue service later that afternoon.

The Wisconsin Humane Society said that it was rare for someone to spot their missing dog whilst watching the TV show air, saying: “It must have left it on by accident—or perhaps thanks to fate.

“It only took one glance at the picture for Dwight to immediately recognize Payday, his long-lost pup who had gone missing nearly two years ago!”

The shelter also revealed that another member of Dwight’s family would be delighted to see the dog, explaining: “Payday was originally purchased for Dwight’s now 12-year-old daughter, who was still distraught over the incredible loss of her best friend.”

A video showing the lost dog being greeted by Dwight’s mum, Melissa, for the first time was posted to The Wisconsin Humane Society’s Facebook page who came to pick up “the beloved pup.”

In the clip, Payday jumps up excitedly to Melissa, who picks up the dog exclaiming: “My baby!” while the small hound licks her face.

The Facebook post, which has been liked 937 times, reads: “We are beyond ecstatic for this amazing family to finally be whole again.”

Several viewers left comments expressing their delight of the heartwarming video, one Facebook user, Sherry Scheffler Schinkowitch, typed: “No other proof needed that he was their baby! How wonderful they found each other.”

Dawn K. Harwood added: “YAY! So happy that you’re back with your family safe and sound!”

Rachel Marie commented: “That baby knew who his mommy was Soo happy for them both!”

Speaking to Newsweek the Wisconsin Humane Society said: “Returning lost animals to their families is a core part of our daily animal sheltering work, and it’s a privilege to witness the profound joy of a redemption—especially one that waited two years!”
