A dog who was missing for three years has been reunited with his family just in time for Christmas after being found almost 200 miles away from home.
Earlier this month, Donna Wreford found a small Yorkshire Terrier wandering around her Romulus home. After asking around the neighborhood, Wreford took the dog to the Romulus Animal Shelter.
Workers at the shelter used an electronic wand to scan the dog and determined he had a microchip implant that had owner information on file with the American Kennel Club. Workers contacted the AKC, who confirmed that the dog was reported missing by a family located in Columbus, Ohio more than three years ago.
The AKC contacted the owners, Ta-Shina and Darrin Green — who were still currently living in Columbus — and advised them to contact the Romulus Animal Shelter for some good news regarding their lost dog.
The Green family immediately contacted the shelter and finally heard the news they had been waiting so long for — that after three years of being missing, their long-lost dog “Rexxn” was found in Romulus, around 200 miles north of his home.
