Mayhem the pit bull is back with her family Tuesday and it’s a tail-wagging reunion that’s been three years in the making.

Three years ago, Mayhem disappeared in Missouri while Richard Glosser’s family was moving. In December, an animal rescue group found the dog 170 miles from her original home.

Just before the dog was supposed to be euthanized, a veterinarian discovered a microchip in the animal. The microchip led them to Glosser, who now lives in Arizona.

A friend of the rescuer, who also lives in Arizona, was in Missouri for the holidays and decided to deliver Mayhem to Glosser.

Mayhem was reunited with her owner at Steele Indian School Park in Phoenix.

Glosser said he plans to give Mayhem three years’ worth of missed-out loving.
