Twin Ports animal shelter reconnects dog with Florida owners

It's been a long road for Endo the mastiff. But a Superior, Wisconsin, animal shelter is finally reuniting the pooch with his Cape Coral, Florida, humans, whom he last saw a year-and-a-half and 1,500 miles ago.

After Endo broke though his fence, owners Denise and Tommy Hartzog thought he'd been done in by the alligators that live in a canal near their home. He'd actually been found by someone who subsequently moved to the Twin Cities. Endo also had temporary owners in Duluth and Superior before winding up at Animal Allies Humane Society shelter. Staff there used a microchip embedded in Endo's shoulder to trace him to the Hartzogs.
