Dog Missing for Five Years Returned to Owner
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - A small dog that wandered away from its owner in South Florida five years ago is finally back home.
Jessica Namath, the daughter of former New York Jets football star Joe Namath, had her Shih Tzu mix named Tula with her in a Jupiter backyard five years ago. The dog wandered into the front yard, and when Namath went to look for it, the dog was gone.
Namath tells the Tampa Bay Times that she was shocked to get a phone call Wednesday about the missing dog. The caller was Michael Cecere of St. Petersburg, who found had found the dog in front of his car.
He took the dog to an animal hospital, where a tracking chip was found in the dog. Namath and Tula were reunited Thursday.
