FLAGSTAFF, Ariz.(AP) A basset hound that disappeared from its California home in December has been found 430 miles away in Arizona.

The dog, named Fred, was found by an employee Wednesday in the parking lot of the Second Chance Center for Animals in Flagstaff.

The next morning, staff members with the shelter found a microchip in Fred that let them figure out he was registered at Riverside County Animal Control.

The shelter contacted Fred's speechless owner on Friday.

The owner said Fred disappeared after she moved to Riverside in December. She didn't know how he could have ended up in Flagstaff.

Paul Fink, a veterinarian at the Flagstaff shelter and a pilot, has offered to fly the dog home to his family.

I saw a dog story, but didn't see that it was a basset. Both of my dogs are chipped. I took them to PetSmart it cost 30ish bucks. Another good thing is that if they were to be picked up and were hurt PetSmart would cover up to 1000 worth of medical bills until we could get there...I'd say that was a good thing, they wouldn't have to wait to give medical care, they would take care of it.
