It turned out to be good news for everyone involved.
Jason Gasparik, 40, was driving home from work when he spotted a dog running back and forth in the traffic in Charlotte, North Carolina. He pulled over and rushed into the road to rescue the brown labrador before it was hurt.
When the dog had calmed down, Jason took it home and started the search for its owner. Jason put out a few posts on various social media channels, but it didn't produce any results. So, he went to Plan B and made a makeshift sign. He wrote a simple question on a sheet of cardboard: “Do you know this lost dog?” and went and stood on a street corner with the sign and the labrador.
When a local photographer snapped a pic of the lab and Jason together, it quickly went viral. In no time, a woman who saw the picture, heard about a man looking for his lost dog. She showed the gentleman the pic and soon after, the two were happily reunited.
Turns out, Jason’s dedication to help the lost animal and their viral picture, gained him the attention of the ladies, and he even got some date requests.
