A dog who went missing five years ago has been reunited with her owner in Melbourne, Australia, thanks to a
microchip and the staff at Lort Smith Animal Hospital.
Rebecca Axiak says she never stopped looking for her dog Disco after she disappeared. She told Mashable, “I
always had hope that she would return, never really expecting it to actually happen.”

The Herald Sun who originally reported the story say, “After Disco escaped five years ago, she was found in the street by an elderly couple who presumed she was homeless and gave her to a family member.
The new owner kept Disco, but while she was in a backyard earlier this year, another dog jumped the fence and severely attacked her.”
Unable to pay for the surgery, they surrendered her to the hospital, where her microchip was scanned.
