Family Gets A Shock Of A Lifetime When Their Dog Returns After Disappearing 10 Years Ago

There are many stories of pets going missing and finding their way back to their owners, but the story of a black labrador Abby is something unique and beautiful.

10 years ago, Debra Suierveld, the owner of Abby, together with her children were playing with the one-year-old pup in the backyard of their home in Apollo, Pennsylvania. At some point, the dog ran off, and even though the family searched everywhere for her, she was nowhere to be found. After some time searching with no luck, the heartbroken family declared Abby dead.

But this wasn’t the end of this story. 10 years later, Abby showed up on a porch of a house 8 miles away from her owner’s house. She was brought to a shelter, where the dog was identified based on the information in her microchip that the Suiervelds had implanted back when she was a pup.

Debra was taken by surprise when she got a call that her dog was found and called it a miracle.

It’s unknown where the dog was for all these years, but it’s so amazing to know, that Abby back at her loving home.

Wait...so they just reclaimed this pupper after all that time? She doesn't know she was lost and what about the folks that raised her for all those years?? They just split them all up? I don't like this story one bit.

Well, they don't know what exactly happened to her for that decade, but it is quite possible another family took her in. In fact, Abbey could have run away from THEM and gotten lost. I agree. This story just has something odd about it...

So we don't even get to know what happened to the dog for the last 10 years? :( Great she'll already, of course.
