An underweight, tattered dog turned in at the Woodbury Animal Humane Society wasn't just any stray.

He was a long distance traveler.


After conducting research into the dog's background, Woodbury humane society workers learned the dog had gone missing last August in Alexandria, Minn.

The dog, named Remington, was reclaimed Saturday at the Woodbury location - capping the months long experience for the dog and its owners. Woodbury is about 150 miles from Alexandria.
