Teacup Yorkshire terrier found in Houston

SOUTH MIAMI, Fla. - It's a reunion that was 10 years in the making.

A South Florida family got their teacup Yorkshire terrier back -- a decade after she ran away. 

Ginger was found last week by a couple in Houston. They said the small dog was hiding under a car near a busy road.

The couple took the dog to a veterinarian, who scanned her for a microchip and contacted her original owner. 

Yajaira Fuentes, who lives in South Miami, says Ginger escaped from her backyard in 2005.

After getting the good news, Fuentes paid for boarding and a flight for Ginger to return home. 

It's not clear how the dog got from south Florida to Texas. Fuentes thinks someone may have taken Ginger from South Miami and moved to Texas.
