A truck driver has been reunited with his dog in Colorado after losing the animal last month in southwest Kansas.

The High Plains Daily Leader & Times reports Billy King was at a Wal-Mart in Liberal on Sept. 27 when Taz ran away. King checked with the city's shelter but was told Taz wasn't there.

After leaving Liberal, King kept up the search using social media. Eventually, he learned that an animal rescue group had found Taz and shipped him to Littleton, Colo. King picked up a newly neutered Taz this month.

King says he's glad the dog was neutered and hopes it will calm him down.

Great Plains Angels for Animals volunteer Debra Huddleston helped with the search. She called the reunion "a miracle."
