TYLER, Texas (AP) —.An East Texas family’s dog that ran away seven years ago has been found in Tacoma, and returned thanks to a microchip implanted in the pooch
Dinah Miller of Tyler traveled to Houston on Tuesday to reclaim her Maltese named Reese.
Miller says her family was visiting relatives near Dallas in 2007 when Reese got loose. The Millers received a call last weekend that their dog was found on a road in Tacoma and a veterinarian discovered the microchip with the contact information.
Meanwhile, Kelli Davis of Spanaway, says her family adopted the dog at a shelter in Mesquite, Texas, about six years ago. The Davis family later moved to Washington. The pet they called Harley recently ran off.
