PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) - A lot has happened to the Geary family since their German shepherd, Astro, went missing from their Florida home 9 years ago. They moved three times and ended up in Louisville, Ky.
The family was shocked when they recently received a call from an animal control officer, who said that Astro had been found.
The family was living in Florida 9 years ago and adopted the dog in Palm City. A month later, he disappeared.
On Jan. 29, 2009, an animal control officer in Tennessee picked up Astro, who was running loose.
Officers tracked down the family through a microchip implanted in the canine.
Dog and family were happily reunited.
