Rocco Travels 850 Miles From Home

Everybody loves a good story about missing pets being reunited with their owners, so I was super happy to see this on on the Today show this morning. A Beagle named Rocco disappeared from his Queens home 5 years ago and popped up at an animal shelter in Georgia on July 5 – the pup traveled nearly 1000 miles!  Thankfully his original owner, Natalie Villacis, had implanted a microchip in Rocco which enabled the Georgia shelter to contact her. No one knows how Rocco made it to the deep south but they believe he was well taken care of, no word yet from the person who had been caring for him. Natalie is now 11 and so happy to have her companion back. “It was really nice to just lay in the bed [yesterday] – I was watching TV, and he’s snuggling up by me, and I told him, ‘You know, I love you, Rocco,” she told the New York Post. What a cutie!
