Dog Howling for Brother Missing in the Woods Praised: ‘Started to Help’

A dog that helped her owner search for her missing brother is being applauded online.

In a clip shared to TikTok by user @axelleontherun on September 18, Idy the Staffordshire bull terrier can be heard calling for her brother Atlas, a pitbull-boxer crossbreed who had gone missing in the woods.

“My little girl is helping us to find Atlas,” Axelle wrote alongside the post, which has so far received over 90,000 likes and more than 670,000 views.

According to American Humane, roughly 10 million pets go missing every year in the U.S., with one in three becoming lost at some point in their lifetime. Only 32 percent of missing pets handed in to shelters are reunited with their owners, and according to pet microchip firm Peeva, 80 percent are never found.
