Dayton, Ohio – A dog who vanished a decade ago is back home with her family. Montgomery County Animal Resource Center (ARC) shared the amazing reunion story with Facebook followers this week, explaining that an embedded microchip is responsible for the unlikely reunion.
The animal welfare agency said:
Thanks to a microchip, Abby was reunited with her family after being missing for TEN YEARS. 😱
The dog, named Abby, was severely underweight when she was first found; so weak that she could barely stand or walk. But she “turned into a happy, wiggly mess the minute her family came to pick her up.”
Abby is thriving back at home where she has already put on 16 pounds. Her family said that she loves to play and go for walks.
Remember the importance of microchips and keeping the contact information up-to-date! Welcome home Abby.
