SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - A family was reunited with their beloved pet dog Piper after being missing for months thanks to Santa Barbara County Animal Services.
Piper's family created flyers and searched for the small gray dog at the shelters daily since it went missing on the third week of March, but Piper was nowhere to be found. That is until reports starting coming in to Animal Services of a small dog running loose without anyone able to catch it.
Animal Services personnel set up a trap and safely caught Piper who was covered in foxtails and suffering from an ear infection. Piper received a bath, haircut, and medical treatment before her family came to pick her up. The entire reunion was caught on video by Santa Barbara County Animal Services. Watch below.
