Dog that escaped Texas backyard shows up in Ohio; how he got there is a mystery, owners say

HAMILTON, Ohio — The owners of a small dog that escaped in Texas have no idea how he made it to a southwest Ohio shelter more than 1,000 miles away.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports the 3-year-old Chihuahua-Dachshund mix named Corbin dug a hole under a fence in his backyard in Killeen, Texas, on March 25. He was found Saturday — four days later — tied to a bench outside a Hamilton, Ohio, animal shelter.

Local officials hope to identify a woman seen on surveillance footage as she left the dog at the shelter.

The Hamilton-Middletown Journal News reports a microchip on the dog helped identify the owners. One says Corbin previously escaped by digging holes but was always found in Killeen.

Corbin is in good shape and is headed home today.
