A man and his four-legged best friend are back together seven years after the pet disappeared during a thunderstorm.
Dan Kesler was living in Raleigh, North Carolina when his doberman, B.A., was spooked by the storm and ran away from home.
Kesler figured his dog would quickly return to the house - but he never did.
Years went by without any sign of B.A. Eventually, Kesler moved 2,000 miles away to Phoenix.
Then he got a phone call he never expected, WRAL reported. B.A. had been found in Durham, North Carolina, not far from the city where he first disappeared.
The reunion was made possible after the dog, who had been injured, was brought into the Animal Protection Society's shelter in Durham last month.
Staff discovered a microchip, a device placed under the skin to help identify animals, and used the information to contact the owner.
B.A. was flown out to Arizona to be reunited with Kesler.
And even after seven years, the dog still remembers his owner.
