Family reunited with dog talks to FOX28

Posted:

A Goshen family is celebrating being complete again.  They lost a member of the family last year, their dog Emma.

It's a homecoming this family has been waiting for for a long time.  Jenny Singer said, "It's been just like a family reunion."

The family's Collie, Emma, got out of their yard in February of 2012.  Laura Dolezal said, "Usually the family rule is we keep the gate closed always but I was in such a rush that day that I left the gate open."

The family has two other dogs.  And they say they have been able to get out before but they always returned.  But this time Emma didn't come back.  "Launched the all out campaign of posters everywhere in Goshen, on my car for a year, went to the Humane Society every week and did a walk through," said Singer.


After a year, they thought Emma was gone for good.  "I never thought that I'd be able to pet her again or hold her again," said Dolezal.

Until Wednesday when the Elkhart County Humane Society told the family they had Emma.  Mom Jenny and daughter Laura rushed to the Humane Society to get their dog.  "It was too good to be true.  I remember looking at her and thinking she's right here, she's back," said Dolezal.

Now the family is spending all their time with Emma.  They're still in disbelief that Emma has returned after so long.  But they couldn't be happier.  "It's nice to have our family all back together again," said Dolezal.

Once Emma was found the Humane Society was able to reunite her with her family because she has a microchip.  So Jenny said now she will be the biggest advocate for microchips.  She is going to get her two other dogs microchipped soon.

And Jenny said that Emma is now part of a police investigation.  She was found in an abandoned home with other dogs.
