DogA soldier in Kansas recently reunited with his bulldog Maximus after someone stole him out of his yard nearly two years ago.

Army Master Sgt. Paul Brightwell had always wanted a bulldog, so when he found out he was going to be sent home from Iraq, he bought one online. The puppy was waiting for him when he got home.

But three years later, Maximus was stolen from his family’s backyard in Oklahoma.

“Someone backed up to our fence and knocked the privacy fence over and took him out of our yard,” Brightwell told KCTV. At the time, a number of purebred dogs were stolen in the area.

Brightwell didn’t think he’d see Maximus again. But two years later, Brightwell was working in Kansas, when he got a call that Maximus was found wondering the streets in Kansas City. He was identified through a microchip, according to KCTV.

Their reunion was caught on video, and it’s gone viral with more than 500,000 views on YouTube.
