Dog Missing for 3 Years Returns to California from Florida


Over the weekend a dog was returned to his rightful owner in Huntington Beach, CA after being gone for over three years. The dog, Smoke, ended up in Florida, some 3000 miles away from his original home. How the pitbull Smoke got all the way to Florida is still anyone’s guess but he’s home and happy now.

His owner, Eric Hough didn’t much care how or why the dog went missing. He was just elated to see his dog again. Three years ago Hough reported the dog stolen and just last week Smoke showed up at an animal shelter in Florida. The staff discovered Smoke was microchipped — Hough’s name came up, but not his new address or telephone number. “Always use microchips with your pets, and never give up hope, we did it, we bought Smoke home,” said Hough.

Good Samaritans worked at tracking Hough down and reunited him with Smoke. Non-profit groups — namely “Missing Pet Partnership” and “Kindred Spirits” split the costs, including airfare.
