A teacup Yorkie reported stolen from its owners' Roscoe Village yard in 2010 was happily reunited with its owner Wednesday thanks to the dog's microchip, which Save-A-Pet in Grayslake was able to scan, reported nbcchicago.com.
According to news reports, "Sadie" was found in poor condition at night, near a busy intersection in Grayslake. The pup's rescuer brought her to Save-A-Pet no-kill shelter and adoption center, where the microchip was scanned.
"We are honored to be able to play a part in reuniting Sadie with her owner after 2.5 years! This amazing story is a great example of how important it is to have your pets microchipped. It isn't expensive and can make all the difference," wrote Save-A-Pet staff on their Facebook page.
Sadie's owner had also used Lost Dogs Illinois to help locate her.
