Kentucky woman reunited with dog missing for 4 years


ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) – A Kentucky woman who lost her two Jack Russell terriers four years ago has been reunited with one of them.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports that Janece Parsons got a call Tuesday that said her dog Army had been found safe and was identified through a microchip. Parsons and her family picked up the 16-year-old deaf dog from the Hardin County Animal Shelter in Elizabethtown just as the shelter opened the next day.

Parsons says she was visiting Hardin County in 2015 when the dogs vanished, likely scared off by a nearby shooting range. She says Army and the still missing Leia weren’t found despite a door-to-door search and posters placed around town.

She says Army and her dog Roxie are now getting to know each other.
