PRESCOTT, AZ - Missing since 2009, a lucky basset hound will soon be reunited with her owner after a long journey that led her to Prescott Valley.
According to a press release, Prescott Valley police took possession and impounded the dog after finding her running loose on July 7.
They scanned the basset hound for a microchip, which she luckily had, and identified her as Molly, belonging to a member of the military in Ft. Hood, Texas.
Her owner said that the dog had disappeared in Ft. Hood in 2009. She had returned from a deployment in Iraq and went on another mission and left Molly at a friend’s house.
Molly ran away from the friend’s house and no one had seen the dog since.
Her owner asked a family in Tucson to pick Molly up from the pound after hearing the wonderful news.
She will drive to Tucson to get her beloved dog back after she returns from her current assignment.
Molly and her owner are just one of the many successful reunions with lost pets thanks to microchip technology.
