Six Years After Being Stolen, A Dog Is Reunited With His Owner On the Central Coast

Roughly six years ago, Cindy Miller's Pomeranian was reported stolen.

She had her dog, Chili, with a pet-sitter near her home in Northern California while she was out of town.

She had no luck finding Chili when she got back, even after extensive door-to-door efforts and posting flyers in her neighborhood.

Two years ago, Miller moved to Santa Barbara, but she never lost hope.

Then, she received a call that Chili was found wandering 30 miles from their old home in poor health.

A veterinarian called her because Chilly had a microchip attached years ago used to get Miller's information.

Chilly is now in Santa Barbara, healthy and with his owner again.
