Woman Travels Over 1000 Miles To Reunite With Her Lost Dog

A Florida woman who lost her dog nearly two years ago was reunited with him in a Detroit animal shelter. The dog, Zeus, had been taken in by a man in Florida after his owner Debi Petranck lost him. The dog was later moved to Detroit and when Zeus ran away from the man, he ended up at the Friends For the Dearborn Animal Shelter. Per the organization’s standard operating procedure, staff at the animal shelter scanned Zeus for a microchip.

When the staff compared the information on the chip to a database they discovered that Zeus had been reported missing two years previously. “The owner, Debi Petranck was ecstatic when we called,” said Elaine Greene, Executive Director of Friends For the Dearborn Animal Shelter.

Petranck was so excited to find out where Zeus was because she had done so much to find him. Petranck immediately got in her car and drove from Florida to Detroit to see Zeus again. When Petranck and Zeus were reunited, it was like the pair had never left each other’s side. “He knew me right off the bat!” Petranck said. “Y’all saw him. He came right to me!”
