Missing Texas Dog Found 900 Miles Away in Florida

A dog that went missing in Texas last week is back with her family after being found nearly 900 miles away in Florida.

Matt Turner tells First Coast News that his 11-month-old miniature Australian Shepherd -- Bell -- went missing from their home north of Houston.

After days of posting her picture on social media and hanging flyers around their neighborhood, Turner learned that Bell was at the Clay Humane Society in Orange Park, Florida.

Workers had tracked her microchip to her Texas vet, who contacted Turner.

Dr. Christian Broadhurst, a vet at the Clay Humane Society, says Bell was in good shape when she came in. Workers don't know how the dog made it so far but assume she got a ride at some point.

Turner and his son flew to northeast on Florida Monday to retrieve the dog.
