In 2007, Joshua Edwards lost his Rottweiler, Duke. Eight years later, they were reunited.
Edwards told the Miami Herald that one day he came home and his dogs were missing from the yard. In addition to knocking on neighbors’ doors for months, he checked animal shelters on a daily basis.
But on May 15, Edwards received a call that Duke has been found, thanks to a microchip that allows someone who’s found a lost dog to identify its owner. Maria Elena Cartaya was the one who found Duke wandering with a limp.
“I think he knew who I was right away,” he told the Herald. “I never thought I would see him again.”
