RIO LINDA, CA - EXCLUSIVE: Christina Kimble is trying to get her family dog back after losing her several weeks ago.
Kimble says in 2008 she adopted Miley from a family friend and was given a microchip certificate, just in case the dog was ever lost.
A few weeks ago, Miley got loose from behind her father's gate at his Rio Linda home and went missing.
A passerby found Miley and took the dog to the Rio Linda Veterinary Clinic where receptionist Julie Hammons ran the microchip on the lost dog.
"The microchip was not registered to an owner, but that it was placed at Homeward Bound," said Hammons.
A volunteer with the golden retriever rescue organization Homeward Bound picked up the dog a short time later and started looking for the dog's owner.
