Army Veteran Is Reunited With His Dog After 4 Years Apart

3 Mei 2021

Four years ago, Michael Joy was ready to move to Fort Campbell in Kentucky, but the search for his missing 4-month-old puppy, Sam, continued to bring him back to his old stomping grounds. “I came to Campbell and I kept looking, I kept going back and forth, also I went there three or four times after I moved here. Just maybe he would've shown up down there,” Joy told WTVF. A microchip is responsible for bringing the family back together. Inside Edition Digital’s Stephanie Officer explains.

  • Wait what? How did it take 4 years for someone to think to scan him for a microchip?

  • another family had to have had him! no way a four month old puppy would survive so well on his own. he wasn't a stray for 4 years! he's in great shape and obviously very social. a dog who's been a stray since the age of 4 months would be unsociable. he must of escaped from the family he was living with..

  • Looks like he is adjusting well , cats & other dogs in the house & a child & he seems right at home , 4 yrs being gone . Someone cared for him & socialized him well . I am glad he is home but also feel bad for whoever had him lost a good dog , maybe someone found him & thought he was a lost stray or something . I rewatched it & it said an animal shelter called him , so someone took him there or he got lost again & ended up there , but someone had to have cared for him for 4yrs leading up to being at the shelter.

    • absolutely! I said the same thing... whoever had him for those 4 years looks like they cared for him. he's in good condition and social. maybe they will see this on inside edition and reach out..they can explain why they didn't do more to find the puppies original owner. the bond with that family would naturally be far stronger after 4 years! then this man has had with the dog at 4 months.. I do feel for the "adoptive" family.. I wonder if there's a legal argument here.

    • he was obviously with another family for the past 4 years... they should of checked for the chip but kinda feel bad for the family he ran away from. they had him for four years! this guy only had the dog 4 months before it got lost.

    • They didn’t get the story right. I came home from work and my 3 dogs had gotten loose. 2 of them came back, but Sam didn’t. We think he was taken because if he was a stray, he would’ve gotten picked up within a day or two on Fort Benning.
