Deion Sanders recently lost his family guard dog—one that is worth $15,000.

Please don't worry. This story has a happy ending.

Next Impulse Sports spotted some interesting tweets from the former NFL star, who went through a roller coaster of emotions concerning his German Shepherd recently.

It seems many made a great deal out of the cost of the dog because Sanders specifically mentioned the reason behind the extravagance.

If you are asking Sanders why he would spend so much on a dog, you haven't been following his career closely.

I mean, look at the opulence of that bedroom.

Of course, that's peripheral to the important part of this tale: Sanders has his beautiful dog back!

Still, we are left without the important details as to how the dog went missing, or how it came to find its way home.

Was this merely a matter of the pooch sauntering off for a few hours, only to remember that he has a job to do in protecting Sanders' family?

Better yet, did this play out like a Liam Neeson thrill ride, with similar beats and plot points to the high-octane tour de force that was Taken?

Look, if Sanders went on a two-day manhunt for this dog, wasting pretty much anyone who stood in his way, we have to know.

Sadly, we may never get answers, because Sanders is now deep into a cuddle session with the dog he thought he lost forever.

Someone get me a tissue, because stories with happy endings get me right in the feels.
