The ending to Leo's story is certainly a happy one, but it's a hopeful one, as well. Around the same period Leo went missing, Araç's parents' two other dogs also mysteriously vanished — the work, they suspect, of a local dognapper. But with Leo's safe discovery, hopes are now bolstered that they, too, will one day be found.
"We're so happy Leo is home. I will look carefully everywhere I visit in hopes we find [the other two dogs]," Araç said. "My father and mother will continue to search as long as they can, because they see them as their sons and love them."
