Cedar was just four months old when he went missing from a South Florida family’s backyard in 2017.
“Somebody either stole her out of the yard or she got out of the yard. We’re not 100 percent sure, but she disappeared. We hadn’t heard anything from her for several years”, owner Doug Peterson told WSVN.
“We put up signs everywhere, we drove the car, we checked neighborhoods, I hired a private investigator. For weeks and weeks and then months. We were just devastated” Peterson told the Miami Herald.
Cedar was found abandoned almost 2,000 miles away from her family in the town of Hugo, Colorado by a resident.
The resident informed the local law enforcement.
Hugo Deputy Marshal Steve Ryan said:
“The dog was actually snow covered, so I passed it twice — didn’t even see it. She actually wouldn’t get up, so I had to pick her up and put her in my car. She was wet — appeared to be malnourished.”
Ryan took him to a veterinarian. Thankfully, Cedar’s family had microchipped him so, they were able to find his family.
When his family got to know that Cedar had been found, they were left in tears.
“I immediately cried. I couldn’t believe it. I was in shock. It’s almost two years to the day”, Tamara Peterson told the Herald.
Finally, Cedar reunited with its family after two years.
