A real-life 'Incredible Journey': Lost dog is found 700 miles from home

February 19, 2011 |  9:12 pm

A dog that vanished from a Sacramento suburb Tuesday afternoon was reunited with its owner Saturday after turning up more than 700 miles away, unharmed, in Washington state.

The 2-year-old Patterdale terrier, Bear, was last seen playing around the family construction business where its owner, 32-year-old Bryan Rapozo, works with his father.

"Bryan is with Bear every day," said his father, Bret Rapozo, 51. "It's like his son. Everywhere Bryan goes, Bear's with him."

On Thursday, they received a call from the Humane Society in Tacoma, Wash. Bear had turned up in a local neighborhood, and someone had brought him in. A microchip confirmed his identity.
