Michelle Daniels wants her dog’s new owners to know that her family is not complete without their pet. The family misses him, especially her two young sons and her elderly father Karl.

The 10-year-old miniature pinscher boxer mix ran out the front door one Sunday in late August, ended up at a Toronto animal shelter and was eventually adopted by a couple who’ve decided to keep him.

Daniels’ father, 80, has dementia. When she goes to work and leaves him with caretakers he doesn’t always recognize who they are. “But a dog is a face he sees every single day,” she told Yahoo Canada News.

“He asks probably more than anyone else” about when Kimbo is coming home, she said.
