Dog gaunt and bedraggled following 37 mile walk home after his family forgot him at service station

A dog in China was left gaunt and bedraggled after embarking on a real-life version of Homeward Bound after he was accidentally left at a service station which his family had stopped at while traveling. As reported by The Mirror, the seven-year-old dog, Dou Dou, walked an astounding 37 miles back to his family home after his owner, Mr. Qiu, accidentally left the family pup behind.

Hours later, when the family got home, they realized that Dou Dou was not in the car as they believed. After discovering their terrible mistake, the family drove back to the service station the following day, hoping that their pet might still be in the area. But when they failed to find him, they returned home, hoping that a kind person had taken Dou Dou in.

Eventually Dou Dou completed his long trek to his family home.

At first, his family thought that it was a dirty, stray dog, but then they realized that it was their long-lost friend. The dog was skinny and weak, and amazingly he had not been injured. After being home for a short time, he regained his strength.
