KENNER - With smiles, tears of joy and lots of licking, a Yorkshire terrier picked up as a stray in Iowa has been reunited with the 14-year-old Louisiana girl from whom he was stolen three years ago.

Karisa Lambert was in tears when a Cedar Rapids, Iowa, animal control worker handed Sam to her Wednesday at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport.

Her father, Thomas Lambert, says his brother gave Sam to Karisa when she was 4, and the dog disappeared from their backyard three years ago. He says the family had given him up for dead.

A city of Cedar Rapids news release says Sam was found April 14. A microchip implant in the dog enabled animal control officers to reach the Lamberts in the New Orleans suburb of Bridge City.
