After eight years and nearly 400 miles away, the Hendry family are celebrating this week after the Houston SPCA and friends reunited them with their dog, Jasper.

HOUSTON (PRNewswire) — Jasper, a 12-year-old Australian shepherd mix, is finally home after he went missing from the Hendry family home eight years ago in Monroe, Louisiana.

The Hendrys said they were shocked to hear the news that their beloved dog Jasper was not only alive but discovered some 400 miles away in Houston after being gone for nearly a decade.

Jasper went on an adventure for eight years, including finding another family, before being reunited with the Hendrys.

During those eight years, Jasper was taken care of by another family who eventually moved to Houston and brought him to the Houston SPCA over the weekend.

The Houston SPCA scanned Jasper for a microchip as part of their admissions process and immediately contacted the Hendrys after garnering their contact information.

“We thought he was dead until we got a phone call from the Houston SPCA saying they had Jasper in their care,” said Tiffany Hendry. “It’s so great there is a place where animals can be taken in and have their microchip scanned.”

The Hendry family said now that Jasper is home again, he will spend his days enjoying their 50-acre ranch with a host of other pets and farm animals.

The Houston SPCA wants this amazing reunion to showcase the effectiveness of microchipping pets and serve as an important reminder for pets to wear collars with updated tags as well.
