Kentucky dog missing for 3 years turns up over 400 miles away in Michigan

This dog really was a rover.

A pooch who went missing three years ago in Kentucky has turned up — more than 400 miles away in Michigan, according to a report.

Callie went missing from owner Venes Mosier’s Hopkinsville home after burglars ransacked it while she was in a hospital just before Christmas 2017, the homeowner told WOOD TV.

She had given up hope of ever seeing her again when she got a call late last month from animal control officers in Cass County that Callie had been found in Michigan near the border of Indianapolis.

“I was kind of shocked … I was like, ‘No way!’ Because it’s been three years,” Mosier told the station.

“I was bouncing off the walls. I was in tears. I was excited,” Mosier said, saying her dogs are “like my kids.”

Cass County Animal Control officials were easily able to ID Callie because she had been microchipped, they said.

“I have been with the department for over 25 years now. This is a first,” director Ronald Butts said.

Officials still do not know how Callie made it to Michigan, but said she was “in great condition” and been taken care of. A volunteer group returned her to her owner in Kentucky.

“Callie needed to go back to Kentucky where she belonged,” Butts told the station.
