A long-lost dog named Brandi reunited with her human companion in Penticton this weekend thanks to a little help from a local veterinarian and Dog Control.

According to Penticton Dog Control, Brandi had been reported missing two provinces away on June 19.

When was recently taken to a Penticton veterinary clinic for a medical checkup in recent days how her journey unfolded became more clear.

"The individual who found (the dog) decided they wanted to keep her so they wanted a veterinarian to look her over,” the Dog Control release said. “During the exam, they conveyed they had found the dog in another province and said it was a stray only wearing a collar, so they took it.”

The collar they showed the veterinarian had a dog license on it but the dog was now wearing a new harness that had a new name tag with a new name on it.

“The veterinary clinic contacted us right away and we have since seized the dog,” the post reads.

They managed to hunt down the owner who had been looking for their dog since June 19.

The dog owner traveled through “two provinces” to reunite with his dog, Brandi.

When asked whether the dog was “over the moon” about the reunion, the answer was "yes."

Penticton Dog Control featured the reunion on its Facebook page, noting it highlighted the importance of licenses, microchips or tattoo identification.

Also, it highlights how important it is to report lost dogs to animal control, not just take them as your own.
