Melbourne, July 30 (ANI): A dog lost in Brisbane is set to be reunited with her owner after being found in Melbourne nine years after she went missing.
RSPCA inspector Gail Coulter found flea-bitten Muffy at a squalid back yard after a tip-off about animal cruelty.
"It's an amazing, extraordinary story on several counts. The fact that someone went to the trouble of calling in her case as one of neglect probably saved her life," The Herald Sun quoted Coulter as saying.
"Then the fact that she was microchipped made us realise she had probably come from a very different home and background to the one we found her in.
"And then, most remarkably, that we were able to track down her original owners, nine years later and even though their contact details recorded on the microchip information were hopelessly out of date," Coulter added.
Muffy is due to be flown to Brisbane to reunite with 17-year-old Chloe Rushby who was only eight when her best mate disappeared. (ANI)
