A homeless Englishman from Leeds cried tears of joy after he was reunited with his dog on 22 January after the animal went missing earlier in the month, The Sun reports.

The young man, known only as Lee (24), was happy to have the hound back and kept repeating that his dog, Crystal, is all he has in the world.

After an argument had broken out near the subway where Lee and his beloved pet had been sleeping, Crystal ran off scared, explained Toni Sweeney from Leeds’ volunteer group Helping Hands.

“Someone was rumoured to be seen with her, but we never confirmed that,” Toni said.

“I contacted Murphy’s Army for help and they swiftly put a team in place. People from all over the country sent well wishes and followers were doing all the posters,” she added.

After notices were put up the bull terrier was found one week later by a gamekeeper at Kirkstall Forge railway station, Global News reports.

“It was awesome when I received the call,” Toni said.

“The whole event was a week of panic and broken emotions. Lee and I spent time together while I consoled him and reassured him,” she added.

Since the happy reunion Lee has been given a tent and a leash to keep Crystal close by, especially at night.
