OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma (KFOR) – One family in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma is celebrating after being united with their pet.
A chihuahua dog, “Speedy,” was missing for over two years before being reunited with his Oklahoma City family thanks to a microchip.
His owners, Lori and Don Whitton said if Speedy had not been micro chipped, he would not be home right now.
According to reports, Speedy escaped from his fenced backyard in January 2011.
The Whittons did everything they could think of to find Speedy.
They put up posters, rewards, went to Craigslist, placed ads in a local newspaper, and checked the OKC animal shelter.
On March 10 of this year, Lori received a telephone call from the Norman Animal Welfare Center telling her Speedy was at their facility.
Two University of Oklahoma students had brought Speedy in after they found him on campus.
Reports say that Speedy was wearing a rabies tag from a Midwest City veterinary clinic, which leads the Whittons to believe he was found shortly after his escape and adopted by a caring family.
No one knows how he made his way to the University of Oklahoma campus.
