After six long months, a woman in New Jersey has been reunited with her dog. Tanya Flowers told The Jersey Journal that her 1-year old maltese named Paris somehow got loose from her apartment back in September.
Flowers spent days handing out hundreds of fliers and contacting local animal shelters. She began to lose hope that she’d ever see her pup again.
But over a week ago, a shelter in Staten Island, New York called to tell her that her dog had been found. Flowers couldn’t believe her ears. “I really thought my dog was gone forever. I wasn’t sure if this was a joke or not, because I had received numerous prank phone calls from the fliers I had put up.”

Her pup was supposedly found roaming the streets in North Bergen, New Jersey around four months ago. A man who saw her took Paris in, but recently decided he could no longer care for the dog so he brought Paris to his mom’s home in Staten Island, New York.
The man’s mother took Paris to a vet, where it was discovered that the dog had a microchip linking her to Flowers and allowing the dog and owner to be reunited at last.
“When I walked up to the door in Staten Island and saw my dog, I just started screaming,” Flowers said. Upon seeing her owner, Paris began barking excitedly and giving her tons of kisses, making up for those last six months they spent apart.
