Lost Dog Reunited with Owners 17 Months Later

By Amy Sinatra Ayres |

Sassy the Beagle was happily reunited with her humans 400 miles from her Kentucky home, 17 months after she disappeared.

The dog was saved from a kill shelter by Forever Home Beagle Rescue, which is based in Pittsburgh, Pa., and was living in a foster home. On a recent trip to the vet, a microchip was detected, and the data led to owners Cindy and Ernie Romans.

It's now believed that the original shelter never checked for the chip. The Romans were reunited with their pup in Pennsylvania. "I would like for every pet owner who's ever lost a pet to be able to feel this moment right now," said Cindy Romans. "I'm just over the moon excited." - Watch it at CNN
