A microchip linked Remi to Aaron Webster and family in Houston.
The dog had a wound on his face, hair loss and no teeth, but that didn’t matter much to the Websters, or McKenzie Smith of Saving Hope, who helped reunite the dog with his family.READ MORE: Nebraska Sending State Troopers To Help At Southern Texas Border
“Incredible. That’s the only word that comes to mind. It was warm fuzzies. We cried, definitely, all of us shed a tear of joy,” said Smith.
No one knows at this point what happened to Remi the last 13-plus years or how he made it from Houston to Fort Worth.
Smith credits the dog being microchipped for this reunion.MORE NEWS: Texas Deputy Constable's Wife, Stepdaughter Shot During Home Invasion, Police Say
