Yorkie returns home 13 years after it was stolen from owner’s yard

The Fox family never forgot the day when someone in a red Dodge pickup truck stopped in front of their Nashville home and grabbed their Yorkshire terrier from their front yard.

They searched for weeks, but were never able to find the 8-pound pooch or the truck, the Nashville Tennessean reported.

More than 13 years had passed when Karen Fox got a voicemail on March 4 from the company that owned the microchip she had put in the dog, named Connor. A second call came from Nashville’s Animal Control center, telling her someone had brought the dog in after finding it wandering the street.

“It was pure, utter amazement!” Fox said. “I’m still amazed!”

Even better, when she arrived at the shelter, Connor walked up and licked her face. Once home, he seemed to remember his old digs.

Fox said the most emotional thing for her was thinking about how much her husband, who died four years ago, would have celebrated the return of the pup he loved to brush.
