Last November, a pit bull mix was found alone in Maryland.
Luckily, the dog had a microchip, and the Caroline County Humane Society was able to find the owner place on Wichita, Kansas.
Eventually, voulunteers from the Humane Society were able to get in touch with the owner, and that’s when they found out the story of how he ended up at Maryland.
The dog, who named Zimba, had went to a road trip with the owner’s boyfriend. Then when they were away they broke up, leaving the boyfriend angry and upset. He was so upset that he left the dog in Maryland,and stopped answering the phone calls from the owner who’s his girlfriend, CBS Local Baltimore reports.
Zimba’s owner had been searching for him since he was gone and was “thrilled”” to know he was safe. However, she couldn’t figure out on how could she retrieve him due to the 1,000 mile journey and her job and kids.
Then, Zach Holt heard Zimba’s story.
Zach used to work at the shelter together with his girlfriend. When she told him about Zimba, he directly offered to bring back the dog home to the owner. He says he’s a bartender who only works on weekends, so his entire week is free and thinks “why not?”
So Zach gets Zimba and returned him to his owner.
Zach and Zimba haven’t arrived at his place yet, but they’re having a good time on their road trip, which you can see along on the Caroline County Humane Society Facebook page. Zach says he can’t wait to see the faces of the owner when Zimba finally gets home.
Zach didn’t asked for anything on this journey, but the Humane Society is raising funds to pay for the expenses of the road trip.
