‘Maybe she was on a vacation’: Lost California dog found in New Mexico after 3-state trek

LAS CRUCES, N.M. — A lost dog who belonged to a Los Angeles-area family has been found in southern New Mexico following a three-state journey.

KVIA-TV in El Paso, Texas, reports Bella was located in Las Cruces, New Mexico, after a college student took the young husky to an expo and discovered she was chipped.

New Mexico State University student Juan Treto says he had been taken care of the dog for six weeks after the dog showed up near his home.

“I thought maybe she was on a vacation or something,” Treto told KVIA. “I could tell that she just wanted to be loved.” (You can watch a video interview with Treto here.)

It turns out Bella had traveled around 700 miles (1,127 kilometers) from Southern California to southern New Mexico.

Bella’s original owner, Jessica Smith, says her two daughters had been heartbroken the dog was lost and thought they’d never see her again.

The dog has been reunited with the family.
