This Sept. 15, 2014 photo provided by Washington County, Ore., Animal Services in Hillsboro, Ore., shows a Jack Russell terrier named Gidget. The 7-year-old dog who went missing from her Pennsylvania home outside of Philadelphia on April 22 has turned up at an animal shelter nearly 3,000 miles away. Deborah Wood of the County's Bonnie Hays Animal Shelter says a good Samaritan found Gidget this month in Tualatin, Oregon. A microchip implanted in Gidget revealed her owner and hometown. Wood says Gidget was a little thin, but otherwise in good condition. It's a mystery how the dog ended up in Oregon. The shelter and the owner are trying to figure out how to get the dog back to Pennsylvania. (AP Photo/Washington County Animal Services)
