Dog found in Arizona reunited with Calif. family

PRESCOTT, AZ (AP) -

A California family has its dog back, a year and a half after it went missing while the family was camping in western Arizona.

The Daily Courier reports that the family of James and Dana O'Brien of San Juan Capistrano was reunited with Meko, a 4-year-old Brussels Griffon.

Meko had wandered off from the family's tent at a campground in Parker on the Fourth of July weekend in 2012, apparently taken by a man who also was in the campground.

The dog was found last month along a highway in the Prescott area, about 100 miles from Parker. The Yavapai County Humane Society determined his family's identity through an implanted microchip.

The reunion was particularly pleasing for 7-year-old Mady O'Brien, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor in May.
