Nine long months after Kane, a Siberian husky, mysteriously disappeared from his family’s home in Phoenix, Arizona, he’s been found.
One could indeed call it a Christmas miracle.
From AZCentral, Phoenix dog missing 9 months found in Oregon:
A Siberian husky missing from his Phoenix owners since April is heading home from eastern Oregon.
Nine-year-old Kane disappeared from Leanne Saunders’ home one night. Saunders assumes he was stolen.
The East Oregonian reported 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.
From East Oregonian, Lost husky headed home:
A Siberian husky missing since April from Phoenix, Ariz., is on his way back home from Pendleton, and just in time for Christmas.
Kane’s owner, Leanne Saunders, said she and her 7-year-old son can’t wait to see their pet.
