Heartwarming news out of the UK for anyone who has lost a dog.
Archie is a toy poodle who went missing in Essex and turned up 160 km away in Oxford – after 549 days! Dog wardens were able to trace his owner thanks to his microchip. Although scruffy and dirty when found, he was not malnourished and so it is thought that Archie was looked after by someone during the time he was away.
Owner Julia Moran was reunited with Archie on her 47th birthday and said “It is the best birthday present I could ever have.”
