A West Georgia man and a four-legged friend have a lot of catching up to do.
Randy Dely was reunited with his Labrador retriever late last week nearly five years after the dog went missing.
'Ace' recently showed up at Michelle Golden's Beauregard home without a collar and Golden took him to Auburn University's School of Veterinary Medicine where she works in the pharmacy.
Staff members scanned him and found he had a computer chip with his owner's information. Dely is from Americus, Ga. where he serves as Webster County's Sheriff. His dog somehow ended up more than a hundred miles away.
Staff at the Vet Clinic said the dog has been well cared for. Delay said he didn't think he'd ever see the dog again.
