PENDLETON, OR - A Siberian husky missing from his Phoenix owners since April is heading home from East Oregon.
Nine-year-old Kane disappeared from Leanne Saunders' home one night. Saunders assumes he was stolen.
The East Oregonian reports a Pendleton woman saw the husky wearing a leash on Dec. 10 and called police. The dog was put in the pound for a week, then turned over to a local animal-welfare group.
Saunders had put up signs around Phoenix, but every lead turned into a dead end.
A member of the Pendleton Humane Society tracked down Saunders using the dog's identity chip, made more difficult because Saunders had moved and changed her name since the chip was installed.
When she saw a picture of Kane, she knew he was hers.
