(CC NEWSOURCE) — A Texas man whose dog ran away years ago has been reunited with her... more than a thousand miles away.
The last time Kerry Smith saw his dog 'Jazzy' was before she ran off during the July fourth fireworks seven years ago.
He recently got a call from Orange County, Florida animal services.
They had rescued a dog that had been abandoned in a motel room without food or water.
They scanned it for a microchip and were able to contact smith.
He then flew to Orlando Saturday to pick jazzy up.
Smith is now encouraging people to chip their pets.
