TACOMA — A 2-year-old dog that disappeared near Sacramento has been reunited with his owner after turning up 715 miles away in Lakewood, near Tacoma.
Humane Society for Tacoma and Pierce County's Marguerite Richmond says the owner was overjoyed when he picked up Bear Saturday morning. She says "it was a very happy ending."
Bryan Rapozo of Rio Linda, Calif., told the News Tribune of Tacoma his dog disappeared Tuesday afternoon.
A woman found the 20-pound Patterdale terrier named Bear roaming in Lakewood and turned him in Thursday to the Humane Society. The agency was able to scan Bear's microchip and track down his owner.
Agency officials say the dog probably traveled the distance in somebody's vehicle.
