Missing Dog Treks 1,200 Miles

A dog who has been missing from her Australian family’s home for 9 years was this month found 1,200 miles away from where she vanished.

Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) officers were investigating a potential case of animal cruelty when they found the white fluffy dog, Muffy, in the garden. Thanks to the microchip in the dog’s neck, Muffy’s owner, Natalie Lampard, was able to be identified and they are soon to be reunited.

Quite how Muffy made it all the way down the coast from Brisbane to Melbourne is unknown. Muffy is currently being treated by the RSPCA, and is due to fly home this week.
