Persistent Pup Comes Home Five Years Later
Shih Tzu found his way home after his family moved four times

From time to time you hear about a loyal dog--lost on vacation or during a move--who walks hundreds of miles to find their family.

Last week, Myrna Carillo’s Shih Tzu, Prince, showed up on her doorstep five years after she lost him.   While Prince may not have traveled as far as some of those other dogs, the little Shih Tzu tirelessly looked for Myrna after several major life changes. In the five years Prince was lost, Myrna got married, had two children, and moved four times.

I guess we’ll never know what Price has been doing for the past five years and how he ever found Myrna, but now Prince is finally home and is getting along perfectly with Myrna’s kids.
