A woman in St. Louis, Mo. found a 2-year-old wandering around her neighborhood with a pitbull last week. "He looked well taken care of, he was very neat, very clean; he just didn’t have the shoes on," she told FOX 2 of the boy, according to People Magazine.
The neighbor walked from door to door with the toddler and the dog -- who was a stray and insisted on staying by his side -- until his father recognized him on social media.
"It is important that we stick together, that we help each other, that we go back to the things that our grandparents and their community used to do," the neighbor said of helping reunite the child with his family. "That we build a sense of unity."
As for the loyal dog? The police department is considering adopting this adorable stray.
