Owner Reunited With Dog After 12 Years

Washington Post:- Dutchess the fox terrier squeezed out the door at her owner’s house in Orlando one day in February 2007 and didn’t return.

A devastated Katheryn Strang made “lost dog” signs and took daily trips to the local shelter for months, desperate to find her.

On Friday, Strang finally got the reunion she had been hoping for — 12 years after Dutchess disappeared.

A man found the dog under his shed in the Pittsburgh area, almost 1,000 miles from Orlando. He took the shivering animal to a shelter, Humane Animal Rescue.

There, a scan of Dutchess’s microchip linked her to Strang, who had since moved to Boca Raton, Fla.

At the shelter on Friday, Strang cried as an employee handed her the dog she had always hoped would one day return to her. Staff members posted footage of the emotional reunion on Facebook, writing, “This is why we do what we do.”

“Dutchess. Hi, baby. I missed you,” Strang says in the video as she strokes the dog’s face. “Your face is all white.”

No one knows how Dutchess made the trek to Pittsburgh — or what she has been doing for the past 12 years.

Strang joked that the dog could “tell me some stories.” She said she couldn’t imagine that Dutchess had walked the whole way.

  1. God and animals are the only ones that love unconditionally. While people love with conditions such as money, sex and/or material things, or physical appearance, God and animals love inspite of, while humans love because of.

  2. Quite incredible the life span of a dog is 13 to 15 years,and life is not easy for them after 12 years,they start suffering all kind of problems,same as humans they start falling apart day by day.
