Dog Gone 8 Years Returning to Virginia

Petunia found in California



    How Telehealth Technology is Revolutionizing Healthcare
    Petunia disappeared in Virginia eight years ago but was found in California.

    A pit bull that disappeared eight years ago will be home in Virginia for the holidays.

    Somehow, Petunia wound up 2,700 miles away from home in California. A woman walking her own dogs found Petunia in a wildlife area near Yuba City and took her to an animal shelter.

    A microchip pointed the shelter to Chancellor Veterinarian Clinic in Fredericksburg, which identified Petunia’s owner.

    Petunia was 3 when she disappeared.
