Whittier family reunited with long-lost dog
WHITTIER, Calif. (KABC) -- A Whittier family was reunited with their long-lost dog this week thanks to an animal control officer.
The Martinez family's dog "Foxy" went missing two years ago. They put up signs and searched shelters but couldn't find the dog.
On Monday, Riverside County Animal Services Officer Lorena Barron scooped up the German shepherd mix in Riverside. Barron scanned the dog and discovered a microchip.
The call surprised Martinezes, and they rushed right over. Christina Martinez said she knew immediately that it was Foxy.
