Missing Dog Found 500 Miles Away

A woman says jasmine the dog jumped in her car so she brought the dog here, they scanned her for a chip and they were able to reach its owners all the way in Indiana. It's owners immediately got on the road for this long awaited reunion

Karen Stievenhart didn't need to tell us how much she loves her dog...we saw it firsthand when jasmine suddenly walked out.

“You know I love her when you see her, you'll see how pretty her eyes are there's a looky there....(puppy talk) where you been” the owner said.

Where have you been is a great question...and Jasmine gave us an up close look at those pretty eyes.

Karen and her husband victor say Jasmine slipped out of her collar more than three weeks ago at their home in Terre Haute, Indiana.

They think Jasmine may have hitched a ride south with someone covering more than 500 miles.

Karen told us she never gave up finding her best friend.

“I've been checking the shelter in Terre Haute every day they are tired of seeing me,” she said.

But it was the other shelter - the one in Atlanta, Georgia - that gave her the call that she's been waiting for.

“Look at that look at that crying I didn't think we would see her again,” Karen said.

She got her thanks to a chip.

“I encourage anybody to go microchip because they would have never found this dog if it weren't for microchip,” Karen said.

Now Jasmine is headed back up north...and only she knows how she covered the 500 miles - the first time.
