Iggy chocolate lab reunited after 5 YEARS!
« on: March 17, 2010, 09:40:15 AM »
When Iggy the puppy went walkies and vanished, his young owner thought she would never see him again.

But five years on, Brierley Howard, 12, was reunited with the chocolate labrador after he turned up 130 miles away.

Iggy was an 18-month-old puppy when he disappeared in August 2005.

Brierley and her brother Jasper, now 14, were devastated. Her parents, Karen and Eric,  believed he had been stolen.

But the family, from Rawtenstall, Lancs, have now been reunited with Iggy after he was spotted wandering the streets in Leicester and taken to a vet.

The vet discovered the dog was fitted with a microchip and he was able to alert Brierley and her family.

Mrs Howard, 44, said: 'We had given up all hope. It is just so great to have him back - although I would never have recognised him. He has put on quite a bit of weight.

'Amazingly though he is just the same and still plays like he is a puppy.

'Fortunately for us, the woman took him to a vet, they scanned him and got in touch with the microchip people.

Karen, Eric, Brierley & Jasper I am over the moon for all of you and that includes Iggy too, of course!

"One of the happiest sights in the world comes when a lost dog is reunited with a master he loves. You just haven't seen joy till you have seen that."
