AUSTIN (KXAN) - A dog that went missing two years ago is now back with her owner after a school clerk found the pet at St. Elmo Elementary School.
Sonia Lopez found the dog, Diva, outside the school this week. She called the city.
The Austin Animal Center was able to find the owner because the dog was micro-chipped.
"I immediately started calling the family saying 'You won't believe this Diva's back," said Diva's owner Sandera Washington. "At first I didn't believe it. I thought. It's been two years, there's no way in the world."
Lopez says she was surprised to hear what a difference her call made.
"We go through this everyday here at school with our children," Lopez said. "You help children and families all the time. So just adding this is another way of saying, you know, we help. We love to help"
