Pet Reunion: Jamie Carpentier Reunited With Dog A Decade After Divorce

Talk about a divorce story with a happy ending.

New Hampshire man Jamie Carpentier was recently reunited with his dog, a basset hound named Ginger, after more than a decade apart, news station WMUR 9 reports. He never thought he would see her again because his ex-wife kept the then-3-year-old dog after their divorce.

Ten years after the split, Carpentier found himself browsing the web looking for a new pet. He stumbled upon the Humane Society for Greater Nashua website where he read about a 13-year-old basset hound named Ginger. There were no photos of her, but he had a feeling this might be his long-lost pal.

In January, Carpentier visited the shelter and he knew immediately that it was, indeed, his Ginger.

"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.
