A German Shepherd that was found abandoned in Colorado has been returned to its family, nearly two years after it was stolen in Florida as a puppy.
The German Shepherd named Cedar was found in a rural Colorado ditch by a few travelers. Cedar appeared malnourished with an injured leg when he was first found. Thankfully he was identified thanks to his microchip.
Animal charity organization Wings of Rescue says the German Shepherd named Cedar was covered with snow in a rural Colorado ditch, apparently malnourished with an injured leg when a deputy marshal found her.
The dog was later identified thanks to its microchip. Cedar was stolen from his backyard over 2 years ago in May 2017 in Southwest Ranches, FL. At that time, Cedar was just a 4-month old puppy, the dogs owner Tamara Peterson states someone jumped over her fence and stole the dog.
How Cedar ended up 2,000 miles in Colorado is a mystery. From the injuries sustained, it appeared to have been thrown from a moving vehicle. After dropping Cedar off at a local Veterinarian, Cedar was scanned for a microchip and turns out he was from South Florida.
Tamara Peterson received a phone call that Cedar was found. “I immediately cried,” Tamara Peterson told. “I couldn’t believe it. I was in shock. It’s almost two years to the day.”

Peterson said Cedar has been resting, and the family is planning to take her out swimming as soon as she looks better.
