AN ALABAMA FAMILY drove to Colorado at the weekend to be reunited with their dog Boozer after a 9-year separation.

Boozer, now 10, had gone missing while the family was moving from Tennessee to Alabama.

KUSA-TV reports that a man who had owned Boozer, a boxer cross, recently moved to Denver and gave the dog to Foothills Animal Shelter in Golden on 2 August. The man said he was unable to take care of Boozer.

The shelter scanned Boozer’s microchip and discovered that he was registered to Lloyd Goldston of Alabama.

Goldston says he kept an album of Boozer and the dog was always in their hearts.

“We never forgot him,” he said.

Goldston and his two children drove 18 hours to the animal shelter, where Goldston got teary-eyed when he got to spend time with Boozer again.

“He’s beautiful. Yes you are. Yes you are,” Goldston told his pet, giving him a hug.

Hey Boozer! Welcome back, buddy.

When Boozer went missing, Goldston said he didn’t have time to look for him in the middle of his move to another state.
