GREENFIELD, Ind., Dec. 17 (UPI) -- An Indiana pet adoption center says it reunited a man with his Shih Tzu five years after the little canine went missing.

The reTails adoption center in Greenfield said it received a Shih Tzu Friday that had been picked up as a stray Nov. 30 and a microchip scan identified an owner and listed a working phone number, the center said on its website.

ReTails said the chip identified the dog as Bandit and staff quickly phoned the dog's owner, who it identified as Mike.

Mike said the dog had escaped from his home while he was working a full five years ago and had not been seen since despite his efforts to find him.

Workers said the owner came to the center within 10 minutes of being called for an emotional reunion with Bandit.
