Eight years after she vanished, Petunia the dog is found in California

A dog who went missing eight years ago in Virginia is to be reunited with her owners after she turned up in California. Vets scanned a microchip after the dog, named Petunia, was taken to an animal shelter.

It’s not clear how Petunia made the cross-country trip. The American Staffordshire terrier went missing from her family’s farm around Thanksgiving 2003 and although a search was mounted, she was never located – until now!

Once the initial ID was made, photos were sent to her family, who confirmed her identity. The dog is now expected to be taken back to Virginia in time for Christmas.
