Thames, a three-year-old German shepherd, vanished during a search and rescue operation in the Tararua Ranges of New Zealand. He was alone in the highlands for seven days and nights while the New Zealand Police searched frantically for their missing friend.
Thames was reunited with his handler, Constable Mike Wakefield, on Sunday after a six-person search and rescue team discovered a fresh pawprint in the mud and tracked him down. Despite the fact that police canines are meant to be calm, Thames couldn’t contain his joy, jumping on and licking his handler, as seen in a video published by the New Zealand Police.
Wakefield was relieved as well. In the video, he says, “He’s quite excited to see me,” as he holds Thames back from toppling him over. “It makes me very glad to see him.” Wakefield said in a statement, “He wolfed down half of my salami, which is a treat for him.” “I cuddled him and we had a good time.” I couldn’t think of anything to say.”
