DALLAS (CBS 11 NEWS) - Seven years after losing her Chihuahua, Morgan Littrell still wonders what happened to her. “I still think about her a lot.  It’s so weird,” she said.

Two year old Kanga escaped from home during a winter storm. “I knew she couldn’t have gone far. She was little, and it was cold,” said Littrell.
Distraught, she took pictures door to door and put up posters of the little dog.

Even now, she finds herself taking a second look at any stray or lost Chihuahuas, hoping to recognize an old friend.

“I miss her, and I’ve thought about the day I’d get that phone call,” she said.

At Dallas Animal Services, pictures of lost pets like Kanga fill an entire wall.  Lost and Found coordinator, Tony Villareal, scans lost and stray animals for microchips, hoping to identify them and return them to their owners.

Monday, he got a hit on a small dog and dialed the phone number registered to its chip to let the owner know the dog was safe.

“There’s this moment of silence, and all of sudden this burst of tears,” said Villareal.

“I just lost it,” said Littrell. Arriving at Dallas Animal Services, she found the pet she’d lost all those years ago.

“It’s emotional. It’s strange, but it’s exciting,” she said. A little fatter and a little older, Kanga isn’t sharing stories of where she was all this time.

She seems happy to be headed back home, no longer a lost dog.
