Dog Missing from Pennsylvania Found in Oregon

A Jack Russell terrier that went missing from its Pennsylvania home has turned up at an animal shelter nearly 3,000 miles away.

Deborah Wood of the Bonnie Hays Animal Shelter says a good Samaritan found the 7-year-old dog named Gidget this month in Tualatin, Oregon.

A microchip implanted in Gidget revealed that the owner lived in a town near Philadelphia. The owner told a shelter employee that her dog has been missing since April 22.

Wood says Gidget was a little thin, but otherwise in good condition. It's a mystery how the dog ended up in Oregon.

The shelter and the owner are trying to figure out how to get the dog back to Pennsylvania.
