Who let the dog out? Chihuahua from Texas found in Georgia
ATLANTA - The Atlanta Humane Society says a lost dog from Texas has been reunited with its owner after being found 800 miles away in Georgia.
Local news media report that the five-pound Chihuahua named Coco was reunited Friday evening with his owner Amanda Benton, who traveled from Arlington, Texas. A volunteer from the humane society found the missing dog Thursday, tracking him down with his microchip.
Benton's dog had been missing since September.
The humane Society bought Benton a flight from Texas so she could pick up Coco and take him back home. The humane society doesn't know how Coco got to Atlanta.
