Dog Makes 800-mile Journey to Georgia

- Coco the Chihuahua was found a very long way from home: more than 800 miles.

"How did you get so far away from me?" owner said Amanda Benton to Coco, during the heartwarming reunion.

The Atlanta Humane Society received Coco yesterday into its facilities. A microchip check showed that Coco's home address is in Arlington, Texas.

Coco escaped from his leash in September of last year.

"We put fliers out, went door to door, looking everywhere for him!" Benton said.

Coco was found in Alpharetta, and staff said he was well-fed and cared for.

When Benton was notified about Coco's whereabouts, she needed help getting Coco from Atlanta to Texas.

The Atlanta Humane Society volunteered to fly her into Atlanta for a remarkable reunion.

"They have been amazing. I couldn't ask for more," Benton said.

Benton will bring Coco home as a surprise for her daughter, who has missed him dearly.
