The 14-year-old toy fox terrier was reunited with her Florida-based owner Friday after disappearing 12 years ago. The dog was found rougly 1,130 miles away from home in Pittsburgh. Humane Animal Rescue says it found Dutchess under a shed. She was hungry and shivering. The rescue center used Dutchess’ microchip to locate her owner, Katheryn Strang, who drove from Boca Raton to Pittsburgh to reunite with her long-lost pet. Strang was in disbelief when she heard the news that Dutchess had been found. Dutchess escaped one day in 2007 when Strang’s son opened the door to leave for school. At the time, Strang and her family lived in Orlando on a busy street; she assumed Dutchess was either hit by a car or picked up by someone. Strang said she checked local animal shelters every day after her beloved dog went missing. She also continued to pay the annual microchip fee and update her contact information any time the family moved.
