The fluffy dog is named Cooper. He was dropped off about a month ago at an animal shelter in Islip, 35 miles east of New York City. He'd been found on a street in Brentwood, about 15 miles from his home in Lloyd Harbor. He'd been reported missing in 2006.
Shelter supervisor Joanne Daly says a scanner located a microchip ID under Cooper's skin.
Cooper's breed is called coton de Tulear. Except for matted hair, he was in good condition.
Owner Gwynne Wicks tells the Newsday newspaper Cooper is "very happy to be home."
