A Virginia family was reunited Thursday with their dog 18 months after he went missing.
Victoria Venier recently found Faithful while walking her dogs in White House and took him to the veterinarian.
It turned out Faithful had a microchip and the vet was able to trace him to the Mitchell family, who previously lived in Murfreesboro.
The family was contacted and traveled to Robertson County where they were reunited Thursday morning with their black lab at Orchard Park Animal Hospital.
It's a complete mystery how Faithful traveled from Murfreesboro to White House, 60 miles north.
Mom Stephanie Mitchell O'Donnell was left speechless.
"It was just, was just…. see, I can't even talk. It was just incredible, oh my gosh," she said, adding, "Here this God sent this wonderful woman who brought him here and these wonderful people who took care of him and found us. I mean who'd a thought?"
It's clear that he is home and he's happy and he's going to go on and have an awesome life," Venier said following the reunion.
Dr. Ted Horner, one of the owners of Orchard Park Animal Hospital, urges the use of microchips and says if Faithful didn't have a microchip, that reunion never would have taken place
