Dog reunited with owner after more than a year

TOLEDO, Oh (WTVG) - For the first time in more than a year, a pup named Mick Jagger was back in his mom's arms.

"It's him and it's amazing," Amy Parker, Mick's owner said. "It's a miracle."

Mick was just five months old when Parker says he was taken from her shop at Cricket West at the beginning of 2016. For months her family and friends searched high and low, hoping to find him.

"It devastated us," Hollie Roberts, Parker's friend said. "He was a part of both of our families. We loved him so much."

Just when they thought he was gone forever, everything changed.

"I got a phone call and they said one of their neighbors had found a dog that looked like Mick Jagger," Roberts said.

That person also said two 11-year-old boys found him near the High Level bridge.

"That was so nice of them to do that because they could have just left him." Parker said of the boys. "It was very kind of them to bring him home to make sure he was safe."

Mick ended up at Lucas County Canine Care and Control to be sure he was identified properly. Once the staff was sure, through pictures provided by Park and Roberts, he was ready to go home again.

"He was in one of the last cages and he got excited and was wagging his tail. I was crying," Parker said.

"It's crazy. He's just the same little guy he was. Same little bark," Roberts told 13abc.

But before he settles back in, Parker made sure to have him micro chipped to make sure he'll always find his way back home.

"He won't be lost again."
