A little Yorkshire Terrier is back in its Planada home after a two year and 200 mile trip to Reno, Washoe County Sheriff’s say.
Buddy went missing two years ago. Officials think that he was taken from his Merced County home, brought to Reno and sold to a resident there.
“We had searched and searched for Buddy after he disappeared and, after all this time, had pretty much given up hope that we’d ever see him again,” Martha Mayo, mother of Buddy’s owner, said in a release.
At some point recently, the Buddy got loose and was found in the Lemmon Valley area, a little north of Reno.
Luckily, the dog had a chip installed in him when he was a puppy. The chip was scanned and Buddy’s original owner was soon found.
Authorities credit the microchip for helping reunite the dog with his original family.
