"It can't be that these dogs endured these horrific journeys only to just go missing without anybody knowing what happened to them."
I came from Venezuela three years ago with Nacho, my dog, as part of my family. My daughter Emma says that he is her older brother.
On Instagram, I saw several stories of people being separated from their dogs after crossing the Rio Grande and entering the U.S.
I immediately started crying.
When BuzzFeed's editor told me what the story was about, I nearly cried -again. By the way, the family is from Venezuela, and from the same city I grew up.
