Texas Dog Returns Home After Showing Up in Indiana

Blue, a 1-year-old pit bull, went missing last year and was found some 1,100 miles away from home

A dog that vanished from her Texas yard last year has been returned home after turning up in a central Indiana city some 1,100 miles away.

JoeAnn Navarro, 69, of Galveston, Texas, says her two pit bulls apparently were stolen from her backyard in May.

Navarro thought she'd never see either dog again, but the Kokomo Humane Society called her a week ago to say a stranger had dropped her year-old pit bull Blue off at its shelter about 40 miles north of Indianapolis.

A microchip implanted in Blue led to Navarro. Three men, including two retired Galveston County sheriff's deputies, drove to Indiana. On Saturday, the Galveston County Daily News reported the three arrived at the Navarro house and, for the first time in eight months, Blue was home.
