The Humane Society of Missouri went to Facebook on Thursday with news of an amazing, long-overdue reunion between a lost dog and her St. Louis, Mo., guardian.

Daphne, a German shepherd mix, arrived to the shelter as a stray on Wednesday; thanks to the microchip embedded in the scruff of her neck, a reunion with her true owner was made possible.

According to KSDK News, Daphne had disappeared from her yard in St. Louis three years ago...where she has been for all of those years is a complete mystery.

The Humane Society of Missouri stated:

The microchip information led staff to Griffin Walker, who is the son of St. Louis City's Director of Health Pamela Walker. HSMO president Kathy Warnick was on hand for the reunion


We are very pleased HSMO could play an important role in reuniting this family with their long-lost pet. This happy day may never have happened without 'Daphne' having been microchipped."

Identification tags are important to keep on your dog's collar, but they can fall off. A microchip is an excellent tool for making reunions such as Daphne's possible.
