Over the last five years, James Bryan of Hudson, Florida has lost his job . . . his wife . . . his home . . . his farm . . . his car . . . and most of his belongings. (Hudson is 45 miles northwest of Tampa. James' age wasn't given, but he looks about 50.)
He's been living on he streets in Hudson, and about the only thing James HADN'T lost was his best friend . . . a pit bull named Handover, who was a gift from his wife.
But on May 8th, James woke up and found Handover was GONE. And he was worried that he'd been taken by a dog-fighting ring.
A woman named Carolyn Texter knew James and Handover from her work at an animal rescue, and when she found out Handover was missing, she started a Facebook campaign to raise reward money. In three weeks, the reward grew to $1,000.
They aren't saying WHO had Handover, or HOW they got him back, but on Wednesday, Carolyn was able to reunite James and Handover.
