A sweet reunion two years in the making took place this weekend in Daytona Beach. 

An Orlando man named Patrick lost his dog, Zoe, two years ago when she was stolen, and now they are back together again. 

Zoe was recently found with dirty and matted hair in a New Smyrna Beach apartment after renters were evicted. While cleaning her up, staff at the Southeast Volusia Humane Society found a microchip with Patrick’s updated information.
