Lost rat terrier found 1,300 miles away

January 7, 2007


— A rat terrier named Daisy that disappeared from her yard in Colorado has been reunited with her owner after showing up some 1,300 miles away in Knoxville.

Two-year-old Daisy was found wandering down the sidewalk on Christmas night by Tracie Crass, who assumed the 12-pound dog had slipped out of its home amid holiday festivities. Crass brought the pooch home and waited for its owner to come looking for it.

When no one showed up by the next day, Crass telephoned the number on Daisy's rabies tag. She reached Daisy's veterinarian, who contacted Daisy's owner, Vonda Lundstrom of Aurora, Colo.

With help from Knoxville's Young-Williams Animal Center, Daisy flew home Wednesday.

Lundstrom has no ties to Knoxville and she assumes someone stole Daisy.
