Here's a lost dog story just won't believe. A pure-bred husky disappeared, and then turned up here in middle Tennessee hundreds of miles from his home in Lubbock, Texas.
Stetson is a Siberian husky. Police found the dog roaming along a busy street in Tullahoma, Tennessee and brought him to animal control.
Problem was there was no collar or tags, so they scanned Stetson for an ID chip implant. Fortunately, the dog had one.
Teresa Holt, the animal control supervisor, ran the number and found the owner in Texas. Stetson's owner, Brittany Poyner in Lubbock, says her dog ran off two weeks ago and vanished.
Somehow, Stetson made the long, nine-hundred mile trip from Lubbock to Tullahoma. No one knows how. Maybe someone stole him and he escaped. Maybe he stowed away on a truck.
His owner's just glad Stetson's safe. So Stetson will be making his way back to Texas. And this time he'll fly. A pet recovery and transport group will arrange the trip home to his owner.
