A 15-year-old dog that went missing from his owner’s Florida home was reunited with the woman nearly a year later when she spotted his photo on an animal rescue’s social media page. Lisa Raulerson said she was living in a West Palm Beach cottage in October 2020 when her 15-year-old dog, Sparky, escaped through a gate that mistakenly had been left open. She said the family began to fear after a couple weeks that Sparky no longer was alive. Raulerson said there was no sign of her longtime pet until she recently spotted a familiar canine on an animal rescue’s Facebook page. The rescue said Sparky had been brought to a shelter as a stray and the rescue had stepped in to prevent the dog from being euthanized. Officials said Sparky had a microchip, but the chip was not registered, so they couldn’t get information about his owner. Raulerson and Sparky were reunited 331 days after the dog’s escape.
