Imagine loving on your dog, playing with them and all that, and then all of a sudden one day they go missing. After seven years (and most likely way before that) you’d probably lose all hope that you’d never see them again, and that’s a natural feeling to have.
For one Texas family, seven years proved to be the sweet spot, because after such a long time apart, the owners and their dog were finally reunited!
Let’s see how this Central Florida dog was reunited with their owners…7 years later!
Roughly seven years ago, dog owner Kerry Smith and his pooch Jazzy were enjoying themselves on the Fourth of July. Jazzy got spooked by some fireworks, took off, and was essentially never seen again.
Fast forward another seven years and guess what? She somehow ended up in the hands of The Orange County Animal Services after getting a call and taking in an abandoned dog. Upon Jazzy’s arrival to a new and strange place, she was scanned for her microchip, and low and behold, her owner was able to be located! The only kicker? Smith lives in Texas and his Jazzy was found in Florida…say what?! I can’t even begin to imagine poor Jazzy’s journey back home!
Kerry Smith credits the microchip for being able to find her. After flying on a plane to go and bring sweet Jazzy home, here’s his message on the importance of microchipping our pups:
"“…everybody…chip your dog…I knew as soon as she went to a vet that I would get the call that I would be waiting for for seven years…I always wondered if she was alive, I always wondered if she was happy, if she was feeling well, and she’s not now, but we will get her better.”"
As for sweet Jazzy and owner Terry, what are next steps? Showering her with love, kisses, and hugs, and making sure she feels better and fully recovers! Prayers to you sweet Jazzy girl!
