ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — An Albuquerque family has been reunited with their missing dog seven years after it had vanished.
KOB-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1WcU8iV ) that Kiki the Pomeranian went missing in 2008. Owner Celeste Madrid says she got a call Friday that someone had found their dog wearing her original collar.
James Madrid says Kiki was found on the side of the road in Moriarty. When a motorist almost hit the dog, she took Kiki to the vet. The vet ran a microchip test and confirmed it was the Pomeranian who has disappeared so long ago.
Kiki was dehydrated, missing teeth and had a mouth injury that made it hard for her to eat, but seems to be recovering.
James Madrid says they don’t know how long Kiki was on the street, but they believe initially she was stolen.
