(WESH) A microchip helped in the search for a Michigan family's missing dog, which somehow wound up in Florida.
The Leasons feared Gigi, a 3-year-old Doberman, was dog-napped and gone for good.
"I hate to think somebody would do that, but I guess maybe there are people like that in this world that would just take a dog," Peggy Leason said.
The family said Gigi disappeared from their yard in Detroit.
Eight days later, Gigi turned up at the Flagler Humane Society after a Palm Coast resident found the dog wandering.
Gigi was wearing a collar the last time the family saw her, but she was without one in Florida.
Gigi was implanted with a microchip, though. That's how Humane Society workers identified her and contacted the family.
