WINNIPEG — A missing family dog was reunited with its family in Winnipeg after a 600-km trek from home.

Boo’s owners Rich Ducharme and Sonia Chaves had been searching tirelessly for their beloved Lhasa Apso/miniature poodle after she went missing last week when thieves broke into their home.

After receiving a tip to look for Boo in northern Manitoba, they started e-mailing photos of the dog to various northern towns, as far as The Pas, 600 km away.

Shawna Robertson, the town administrator, sent it over to the town’s animal pound, where, as luck would have it, Boo had been dropped off anonymously on Friday night.
