Atlanta Dog Found in Florida After 9 Months

St. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - An Atlanta pooch traveled more than 400 miles for a Florida vacation, but even that might not have been enough for the golden retriever.

Pepper the dog was covered in fleas and dirt when a St. Petersburg, Fla., man found him outside a travel office during a thunderstorm. Jay Getman took the dog to a veterinarian.

A microchip implanted in the dog's neck helped him reunite the dog
with his grateful owner last week.

Pepper went missing from a dog sitter's home nine months ago when his family was in Mexico.
