'It finally happened!' Dog who went months without inquiry gets adopted in Stafford County

A dog in Stafford County has been adopted after months of not receiving any inquiries and a Facebook post received more than 65,000 shares.

Thanks to a microchip, the shelter was able to contact Starsky's family who had assumed he had passed away.

The reunion was captured on video by the shelter. They say there were many happy tears and a bit of renewed hope that one day Hutch will find his way back home as well.

"This is why we preach about micro chipping, and never to give up hope. We are so thrilled that his family has been reunited and that we were able to play a small part in that," the shelter posted on Facebook.
