If you’ve ever lost a pet or had one wander away from home this happy story will probably strike you as amazing.

A Lakeland, FL dog disappeared five years ago, but on Sunday his owners got a call they didn’t expect – after five years on the run, their long lost dog, Cane, was finally coming home.

And it’s all thanks to a microchip, a small investment that pays tremendous dividends when needed. “I thought somebody stole him,” said Cane’s owner Kendra Claridy. Claridy says she’s curious about what went on during those five years, but having Cane back is good enough – perhaps the rest is best left to the imagination.

“Last night I was laying with him and I’m talking to him, and I’m saying, “Buddy where have you been? What have you done? Just tell me,'” Claridy said.

“And I wish we could know, but then again I don’t want to know. He’s safe now.”
