Dog Went Missing For 4 Years Until A Call Comes In From A Shelter 900 Miles Away


After their dog was missing for four years, the Lambert family was shocked when they received a call from a shelter in Iowa, telling them that their Yorkshire Terrier has been found.

Sam, the family’s Yorkshire Terrier was a birthday gift to 10-year-old Karisa Lambert, who’s now 15. Then one day, Sam disappeared from their yard in Louisiana. No one knew where Sam went. He was believed to have been stolen from the family’s yard. And after four years of being missing, no one in the family expected to see Sam again. United Airlines flew Sam in first class for free! Watch their heartwarming reunion in the video below!

From Louisiana, Sam got to Iowa, that’s nearly 1000 miles! No one knows how he got there. But the important thing is that he has been found and he’s reunited with his family!
