AUMSVILLE, Ore. (CNN/KPTV/KSTU) - An Oregon family has their dog back years after she went missing.
Three years ago, the Riccitti family left their dog Sara with some friends. That's when she ran away.
"We put up fliers and contacted humane societies and vet clinics, but never found her after that," said Kristin Riccitti.
Then recently, Riccitti received a phone call from an animal hospital in Kearns, Utah, more than 800 miles away. Sara had been found wandering in the base of a canyon.
"It was so unbelievable. I was in incredible shock," she said.
The animal hospital was able to find Sara's owners because the dog was microchipped.
