“How Ashley got to Daytona Beach from Savannah is a mystery,” said a representative of the Halifax Humane Society (HHS).

“The assumption is that she was picked up and driven to the area, where she escaped again or was released.”

Ashley didn’t have a microchip or collar, so she was listed as a stray, renamed Kit, and put up for adoption on the HHS website.

But Hailey Lingo, an advocate for lost and found dogs, saw a post from Ashley on the internet, thought she might be the dog at the shelter and contacted owner Brittney.

Ashley’s owner contacted HHS and ran downstairs the next day to be reunited with her dog.

“As it was, Ashley had two adoption grips on her when she contacted HHS,” the rep said.

“If she’d waited a few more hours, Ashley might have moved to a new house.”

The two were reunited at the shelter as Ashley eagerly jumped up and down, trying to escape her hutch as soon as she saw her owner.

“Ashley, as you can see in the video, was very happy to see her,” the rep said.

“The owner was over the moon when she finally found Ashley after searching for her for over two weeks.”

The representative stressed the importance of chipping pets in order to reunite them with their owners in the future.

“If Ashley had been microchipped, she would have been sent back much sooner,” they said.

Only 22 percent of the missing dogs that ended up in shelters last year were reunited with their families.

“However, the return-to-owner rate for microchipped dogs was over 52 percent.”
