Losing a pet is tough, especially when you’re young. Sadly, the odds of reuniting with a lost pet are rarely in your favor. But Nicole Grimes from Pennsylvania was one of the lucky ones. She was forced to give her dog Chloe up when she was a just little girl. But years later, fate brought them together again and the whole internet was left scratching their heads…and shedding a couple of tears.

It turns out that the original Chloe had been chipped years earlier. So, Nicole’s mom called the Humane Society that put the implant and gave her the chip number. So, Nicole took the dog to the vet to have the chip scanned, and the numbers were identical.
