NASHUA, New Hampshire (WHDH) -- A reunion ten years in the making was well worth the wait for a man, and his best friend.
"She walked right up and started licking me on the cheek," said Jamie Carpentier.
Jamie Carpentier had been separated from his beloved Basset Hound, Ginger, since he got divorced a decade ago. He never expected to have his buddy back -- but fate works in strange ways.
"I kind of was hesitant [when I saw her] like, is it really her?" Carpentier said.
Carpentier had been looking for a new puppy. He went on the website for the Humane Society of Greater Nashua and read a description for an older dog that sounded a lot like his old pal.
