Kira Parra's family thought they'd never see their dog Shiva again. The 2-year-old pup went missing from her Tucson, Arizona home about a month ago. She was eventually found in Folsom, California, which is about 900 miles from Tucson.

This week, Shiva came home.

A person in Northern California paid $350 for the dog's airplane ticket home. Parra was speechless when she heard the news.

"We really didn't expect anything like it. It's really amazing," Parra said. "I mean, you just wouldn't expect it. It's incredible."

Parra and her family said they're thankful for microchip technology, and believe this wouldn't have been possible without it.
