A good Samaritan reunited a lost boy with his father after spotting him walking beside a stray dog in Missouri, USA.

The woman (name withheld) was out with her own dogs when she saw Kh’amorion Taylor along a street at 8 a.m. on Oct. 1. She noted that a large pit bull seemed to be protecting him as he wandered, as per Fox-affiliate KTVI on the same day.

The anonymous woman then took care of Taylor while asking their neighbors if they knew the boy. She also mentioned that Taylor was “very neat” and wearing pajamas but did not have shoes on.

“I knocked on the doors up and down the street. Knocked on the doors, no answers; no one who did answer, they didn’t recognize the child,” she told the news outlet.

After hours of visiting houses, Taylor’s father eventually spotted a post about him online and contacted the good Samaritan.

Following the heartwarming reunion, the woman said: “It is important that we stick together, that we help each other, that we go back to the things that our grandparents and their community used to do.”

“That we build a sense of unity,” she stressed in the report.

Meanwhile, the pit bull that accompanied Taylor may be adopted by the local police department. Ryan Arcadio /ra
