Dutchess was the beloved Toy Fox terrier that belonged to a Florida woman named Kathreyn Strang. Dutchess disappeared in 2007 only to be recovered 1,000 miles away from home- 12 years later. Most lost dogs aren’t recovered. This is simply an amazing and welcomed twist of fate.
So How Did This All happen?
One fateful day on the 28th of February in 2007 then two year old puppy Dutchess left the Florida home when Strang’s son accidentally left the door open. Initially they thought Dutchess was somewhere in the house. However, to their dismay and horror, they later discovered that the dog had left the home through the open door.

In an effort to find their lost furry family, they called area shelters and canvassed the neighborhood with posters. They contacted every lost dog group they could find. The frantically searched for Dutchess and had disappointingly came up empty handed. The only silver lining during this time was that Dutchess had been microchipped. This would allow anyone who found the dog to access her contact information and location. Katheryn paid for and kept the microchip information up to date. She did not give up hope completely of ever finding the pup.
