It’s good when the stories have a happy ending.
Three years ago, the Skelton family were devastated when their beloved pet dog, Daisy, was lost. The family had no idea what happened to her, but they say they never gave up hope of finding her one day.
Recently, Daisy was found in Indiana, which came as a total surprise to the Skelton family, who live near Dallas, Texas.
Katrina Skelton told Fox News about the incredible story, which ended earlier this week when Katrina and her husband finally brought Daisy home after picking her up in Indiana.
“I had Daisy’s missing poster as my Facebook profile picture for a year after she disappeared,” Katrina explained. Since Daisy was microchipped, Katrina said she would always check the site every few weeks to see if the chip was scanned.

Last week, Daisy visited a house in Indiana. The owners greeted her and scheduled a visit to the vet. When they scanned the chip, they discovered Daisy belonged to the Skeltons and called the family.
Katrina said she had no idea how Daisy ended up 1,200 miles from home, but she has a few theories. Daisy is nicely seated in a car, so Katrina thinks it’s possible she was picked up by someone traveling through Texas. It’s also possible that she was taken in by a family who lived in Texas and then moved to Indiana.
While it’s clear Daisy was taken care of wherever she was, the person she was staying with never scanned her microchip or bothered to contact the family.

As soon as she found out that Daisy was in Indiana, Katrina and her husband immediately began planning to drive from Texas to Indiana. Within days, they were on the road.
When they were finally reunited, Daisy looked a little overwhelmed. However, she quickly seemed to remember Katrina and her husband.
When she finally got home, Katrina says Daisy immediately recognized the other dog in the family, Duke.
“They were jumping around and complaining, they were so excited,” she said.

Daisy was the first dog in the family and she was there before Katrina’s children were born. According to Katrina, Daisy was very close to the kids and she can’t wait to see them reconnect. Katrina said that before they picked up Daisy, they were sure Daisy would remember the children no matter how much time had passed.
“Microchip your pets,” Katrina warned. “We never thought it was something we would need or need, but it’s a lifeline.”
