Karen Stievenhart hollered with joy when she saw her dog Jasmine come through the doors at Fulton County Animal Services. She gave Jasmine a hug and asked her where she's been?
But Jasmine isn't able to tell her owner how she got 500 miles from her home in Terre Haute, Indiana and ended up in Atlanta Georgia.
Three weeks ago, Jasmine slipped out of her collar and ran away from home. Since then, Karen and her husband Victor have been looking for her. Karen has been visiting the shelter in Terre Haute every day, but there was no sign of Jasmine. Luckily, Jasmine is microchipped and employees at the Fulton County animal shelter tracked down the Stievenharts to tell them they had their lost dog.
Karen and Victor think Jasmine might of hitched a ride. That's how Jasmine ended up at Atlanta's shelter. The woman in Atlanta who brought her in said that Jasmine jumped right into her car.
Hugging Jasmine, Karen said, "Oh the stories she could tell."
