Kansas Family Reunited with Dog After 1,500 Mile Journey
OSWEGO, Kan. - A southeast Kansas family is reunited with their family dog nearly two months after it disappeared and somehow ended up 1,500 miles away.
Ty and Nikki Lewis and their two children picked up their Jack Russell terrier mix, Rascal, at the airport Saturday night.
Rascal ran away Thanksgiving weekend, and several weeks later turned up at an animal shelter in San Diego. The dog's ID tag listed his owners as the Lewis family from Oswego, Kan., and an animal charity paid for his plane ticket home.
Ty Lewis says the children had no idea their pet was coming home because he told them they were picking up a friend from college at the airport.
