After more than a year of separation, Elizabeth Mahoney and her dog Jasmine have been reunited. Twelve months ago, the Georgia woman relinquished Jasmine to the care of a friend, believing that someone other than herself would be better able to care for the dog and address its medical needs. Jasmine moved to Lubbock, TX with her new family, where she was released and abandoned.
She was found ten days ago by a Texas Tech student. A scanned microchip led the Garland Shelter to Elizabeth, who borrowed money, drove thirteen hours and slept in a rental car in order to get to Texas and reclaim Jasmine.
