Dog that vanished without a trace 8 years ago reunited with her stunned family

2021 has started off with something of a miracle for one stunned dog owner.

Magdalena Klubczuk, 35, assumed she would never see her beloved three-year-old Shih Tzu, Roxy, when she vanished in 2013.

The pup disappeared from her garden whilst Ms Klubczuk was at work, The Daily Post reported, never to be seen again.

Ms Klubczuk, who lives in Connah's Quay, had spent weeks searching for her beloved pet and contacted local veterinary practices but no one had brought Roxy in.

Eventually Ms Klubczuk gave up hope of finding her and presumed she had died or been stolen.

In fact, the devastated dog owner had come to the conclusion that her missing four legged friend had been run over in a hit and run.

But, just when the UK needs it most, it seems that miracles do happen.

At around 11pm on New Year’s Eve, a now 10-year-old Roxy was spotted scuttling through the streets of Buckley.

She was rescued and taken to Skylor’s Animal Rescue.

Dawn Taylor, who runs the centre in Dobshill, scanned the dog to see if she had a microchip and was able to get the contact details for Ms Klubczuk.

And lo and behold, the mum-of-one was stunned to hear the almost unbelievable news.

She said: “When I received the phone call I told them it was not possible.

"When she explained I couldn't even speak I was that shocked.

"We've spent all these years thinking she was dead.”

The thankful owner said she now believes her pup was stolen that fateful day.

She added: “I was just in total disbelief. I actually told her it wasn't possible because my dog was next to me on the sofa, then I realised she was talking about Roxy!"

Roxy stayed Skylor's Animal Rescue overnight and during an inspection Ms Taylor discovered that she has a mammary tumour.

She is now staying with a friend of Ms Klubczuk until she can safely introduce her to her six year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier.

"She looks well, but she is very skinny.

"Until then we just don't know how serious the tumour is.

"It was such an emotional reunion, I felt like she recognised me when she saw me".
