Family reunited with lost dog found 4 years later in Ohio

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - A dog that ran away from a Lansing family four years ago has been reunited with them after being found more than 100 miles away in Ohio and identified through a microchip.
  
The Blade reports a Toledo police officer found 12-year-old Bambi wandering a neighborhood this month and took her to Lucas County Canine Care & Control.
  
Bradley Wieferich said he was surprised by the call from a microchip company telling him Bambi had been found.
  
Bambi and the Wieferich family were reunited in Toledo a week ago. Wieferich said he initially didn't recognize her at the shelter but then saw identifying marks on her muzzle and was greeted with a familiar howl.
  
Wieferich says Bambi is doing well and even remembers some of her old tricks.
