KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A woman living in Oregon got a phone call saying someone found her missing Rottweiler. Tabitha Moore said she never thought she'd see Tyra again.
Moore hopped on a plane and the two were reunited on Friday morning. She said she lived in Warrensburg when Tyra disappeared.
Tyra's microchipped, so Moore hoped she'd show up, but time passed and she moved to Oregon and lost hope.
Moore said her family was shocked to learn Tyra has been living with a local family the last two years. That family was more than happy to return Tyra to her. But it's those first three years Tyra was gone, and no one knows where she was.
"I think she's just nervous. I think she's had a pretty rough run for five years. She'll remember when we get back. We still have our other animals that we had when we had her, so I think she'll remember them for sure,” she said.
The other animals include five dogs and a couple of cats. Moore and Tyra are already on their way back to Oregon. They're making the trip in a car to spend time together.
