Sunshine - a Yorkie mix - disappeared from her backyard in Dallas and ended up on a street corner in Miami.

A 77-year-old Dallas woman has been reunited with her dog after it mysteriously turned up in Florida.

  A Miami Beach club promoter found Sunshine, a Yorkie mix, on a street corner and took her to the vet. A microchip traced the pooch to Jodi Head, more than 1,000 miles away in Texas.
 
The two were reunited Monday at Miami International Airport, where Sunshine happily shook her tail and licked Head's face.
 
Head, a dermatology lab courier, says she's amazed. Neighbors recently hosted some Sunshine State visitors, but that's the only connection she can make between her Sunshine and here.
 
For his help, Head gave $200 to good Samaritan Micha Porat. He spent half of it getting papers for the pooch to fly home.
