CAPE CORAL, Fla. — A neighboring animal control facility reported a small poodle showed up in rough shape; severely matted, with infected eyes, ears and he was also very dehydrated.

The 15-year-old male poodle named Snowball, who was reportedly microchipped to a family in Norfolk, Virginia, had been missing for five years.

Upon hearing the news of Snowball’s location, the owner Kathy was reportedly crying then booked a flight immediately.

The animal clinic said they were able to treat his eyes, update his vaccines, and issued a health certificate so he can fly back with his owner.
