Birmingham - A dog that went missing 10 years ago in
Alabama is being reunited with its owner.
Dental assistant Tracy Dove assumed her 1-year-old dog
named Charlie was gone forever when he disappeared from a pen in the north
Alabama city of Cullman in 2006. She suspects someone stole the German
But animal rescuer Renee Jones got a call recently about
an old dog that was lying outside a church in south Alabama. A microchip
implanted in the animal led Jones to Dove.
No one knows exactly where the dog has been for the last
decade, but Charlie now has a grey muzzle and a cancerous tumour in his chest.
Dove says she's looking forward to reclaiming Charlie and
she wants the make the remainder of his life as comfortable as possible.
