It was an emotional day for the Jackson family of Virginia. They were reunited with their missing dog after four years.
Heather Jackson’s family dog Shakera disappeared from their Virginia home in 2008. After several days of non-stop searching, she thought her family pet was dead and gave up.
A neighbor even told her someone shot her dog.
Then last week an animal rescue center near Chicago called to say they had their dog.
The family had Shakera micro-chipped, and after traveling 700 miles, she finally was being returned home.
Jackson’s happiness is mixed with concern however. An animal shelter near her home picked up the dog years ago, but they said the microchip didn’t scan.
She did say she is thrilled to have her best friend back.
