Microchipped Dog and Owner Reunited After Seven Years

Lurcher RhiaA dog has been reunited with its owner after seven years.

Lyn O'Byrne's Lurcher Rhia, was stolen from the veterinary practice where she worked in Kent in January 2001.

Since then she has moved to Brighouse in West Yorkshire and thought her beloved dog was lost forever.

But last week the veterinary nurse got a call from the Lost Dogs and Cats Line to say they had a dog registered to her address.

Lyn was traced through a microchip containing her details which was inserted into the scruff of the dog's neck.

Scott Craddock, from Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, said: "We are hoping Lyn's happy ending encourages more people to get their pet microchipped and update their details if they move."
