A stray dog was brought in to the South Carolina animal shelter, and was scanned for a microchip when the staff found out something crazy. The dog ended up being a pet that has been missing from his family for three years. The canine was suffering from multiple health problems including malnourishment, dental problems, matted fur and a flea infestation. The dog was identified as an 18-year -old missing pet named Binky.
The shelter said Binky's family, who live six hours away from Summerville, were surprised and overjoyed to learn their pet had been found after three years.
The shelter said Mr. B's story highlights the importance of microchipping.
The canine was driven back home for a reunion by a volunteer.
