In September 2008, the Long family’s 2 Siberian Huskies, China and Asia, were stolen from their backyard. Devastated, Twyla Long reported the dogs missing and prayed that their microchips would eventually lead to their safe return.
The first of the Long’s pets, China, was returned home 2 years later, in 2010. She was found nearly 2 hours away in Saganaw, Texas. As ecstatic as they were for the safe return of China, the family never gave up hope that Asia, too, would find her way back to her family.
On Sunday night, their prayers were answered. Some 825 miles away from their Texas home, a now 5-year old Husky was found wandering along a highway near the airport in Chicago, Illinois. Thanks to the family’s preparedness in microchipping their pets, Asia was returned to her rightful family 4 years after being abducted.
Twyla Long told ABC News, “She came in our house last night and she went right to the back door like she knew the back door was there.”
Upon their reunions, both dogs jumped right back into their routines, as if they had never left.
