Dog lovers prepare to bring out the tissues because this story is a real-world "Homeward Bound."

New Hampshire's Jamie Carpentier and his 13-year-old basset hound Ginger were reunited following a decade-long separation. However, this man's best friend dealt with this "separation" because of a divorce 10 years ago.

According to The Huffington Post, Carpentier was forced to relinquish custody of Ginger to his ex-wife. Fortunately for Carpentier, life works in mysterious ways regardless of how much time has elapsed.

While searching for a new pet on the Humane Society for Greater Nashua website, Carpentier began reading about a dog that fit a remarkably identical description to his long-lost companion.

Although no photographs were available, Carpentier went to the shelter with a nothing more than a strong hunch and lots of hope. Sure enough, the two instantly recognized each other.

"She heard my voice. I walked up to her and she kind of gave me a couple of licks or kisses. And I was like, ‘She knows who I am, she remembers my voice,'" Carpentier told the Nashua Telegraph.

If Hollywood was looking for a reason to make another pet-inspired movie, this story might point them in the right direction.,
