When Nicole Renae was 14 years old, she had to give up her beloved little black dog named Chloe. Years passed, Nicole grew up, got married, had a baby, and wanted to adopt a dog for her daughter to grow up with. So she started checking online ads. A notice of an elderly dog that needed a home caught her eye. The dog was named Chloe, and looked like her long lost dog from childhood, but this dog was gray. Nicole decided this was the dog she wanted.
Upon meeting her "new" dog, Nicole was struck with an uncanny feeling.
"She just ran up to me and started licking my face," she said. "As the day went on, all these characteristics just reminded me of my old dog."
Chloe, it seems, knew her adopter was her old friend from the start — and soon Nicole was convinced of it, too.
"She just kept hugging me. I was crying — it reminded me so much of my Chloe," Nicole said. "I never thought I’d see my dog again, but I just knew in my heart that it was her."
Although eight years had passed, Noel was able to get information from the dog's microchip to confirm that she was, in fact, the same Chloe that Nicole had as a child. Read their story and see plenty of pictures at The Dodo. -via Metafilter
