HOUSTON — A heartwarming reunion took place Friday for an airman and his dog, Wrangler.
Wrangler made the trip from Houston to Spokane, Wash. on Valentine's Day.
The dog was rescued from a hoarder's home in Montgomery County. He was then taken to the Houston SPCA and that's when vets discovered the dog was micro-chipped.
The microchip company was called and they were able to get in touch with the rightful owner: an airman who thought Wrangler was lost three years ago when he was still a puppy.
“Honestly, I was devastated because he was my only dog,” said USAF Airman First Class Ryland Brown. “I’d spent every waking moment with him before I left for basic, you know I had pictures of him in my locker at basic.”
Now the two are back together forever!
