California woman reunited with missing toy poodle after nine years

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A California woman has been reunited with her dog that went missing nine years ago.

Sally Butters' home was robbed back in 2007. Her toy poodle, GiGi, got out of the house during that robbery. But this week, GiGi was found wandering the streets of a town about 20 miles from Butters' house.

GiGi had an implanted microchip, which led veterinarians to Butters, who was a little shocked but thrilled to have her dog back after all these years. 

"I'm shocked because you always hope you get your dog back," Butters said. "But, you know, nine years -- and thirteen-and-a-half years old -- she's still alive. What a Christmas present!"

GiGi had a lot of burrs and matted fur, but is now doing better.
