Lost husky returning home to Arizona

Associated Press

PENDLETON, Ore. – A Siberian husky missing from his Arizona owners since April is heading home from Eastern Oregon.

Nine-year-old Kane disappeared from Leanne Saunders’ home in Phoenix. Saunders put up signs around the city, but every lead turned into a dead end.

On Dec. 10 a Pendleton woman saw the husky wearing a leash and called police. The dog was put in the pound and later turned over to an animal welfare group.

A member of the Pendleton Humane Society tracked down Saunders using the dog’s identity chip.
