Dan Kesler was living in Raleigh when his doberman, B.A., was spooked by the storm and ran away.Kesler figured his dog would quickly return to the home, but he never did.
The first night I spent outside waiting for him to come back,' Kesler told WRAL.Years went by without any sign of B.A. Eventually, Kesler moved to Phoenix.Then he got a phone call he never expected, WRAL reported. B.A., had been found in Durham, North Carolina.
The reunion was made possible after the dog, who had been injured, was brought into the Animal Protection Society's shelter in Durham last month.
Staff discovered a microchip, a device placed under the skin to help identify animals, and used the information to contact the owner.
