Portly basset found 1,000 miles from home
Molly was picked up by police in Prescott Valley, Arizona, who found her wandering the streets — but looking like she hadn’t missed too many meals.
The owner of the rotund basset was located through a microchip on the dog, police said, and she plans to pick her up when she returns from her tour of duty in a month.
The owner, who wasn’t identified by name, was happy to hear Molly had been found, according to the Daily Courier in Prescott.
She told police she had returned from one deployment in Iraq, went on another mission, and while she was gone Molly ran away from the house of a friend who was watching her.
Members of her family in Tucson will be keeping Molly until she returns.
