In 2003, Jamie Carpentier of Nashua, New Hampshire got divorced from his wife. His ex-wife ended up with their basset hound, Ginger, who was three years old at the time. And in the last 10 years, Jamie lost track of her.
Last month, he decided to adopt another dog, and went online to search local animal shelters. He found a dog that matched Ginger's age and description. They sent him a picture, and Jamie knew it was Ginger.
It turns out his ex-wife gave Ginger up not long after the divorce, and an elderly couple adopted her. They took care of her for 10 years, before they became too old and gave her up. Ginger had been in the shelter for about three months before Jamie found her.
Ginger recognized him right away, and the two have been reunited.
