Missing dog reunited with owner after 5 years on the street

She’s one lucky dog.

An adorable pooch that went missing five years ago was finally reunited with her owner after ruff-ing it alone on the streets of Massachusetts, according to a report.

“How did this dog eat? How did it make five winters in Massachusetts?” Needham Animal Control Officer David Parsons told the Boston Globe Wednesday. “ ‘Homeward Bound’ must be like a G movie compared to what this dog has gone through.”

Bay, a Basenji, ran off while at a sitter’s house in Framingham in 2016 and was spotted 10 miles away in Needham last year, according to the report.

A resident called Parsons to report the pup was pooping in her yard, and he later set up a trap to catch her — to no avail, he said.

Then earlier this month, volunteers from Missing Dogs Massachusetts set a bowl of food near a different type of trap and managed to wrangle her on Tuesday, the group said on Facebook.
