When a DeLand couple got the call from an animal shelter about their lost dog, they were surprised to hear the pooch was still alive.
Their golden retriever disappeared seven years ago. Charlie is now 14-years-old.
The animal shelter in Daytona Beach traced a microchip implanted in Charlie to Tim Olson and his wife in DeLand. Officials say the dog was dropped at the shelter with no information about a week ago.
Olson says Charlie jumped a fence in 2001 and didn’t come home.
