Lost Bella’s happy homecoming

Lisa Pauchenet has been reunited with her dog BellaA WOMAN has been reunited with her dog 13 months after it disappeared from its Kings Park home.

Bella, an eight-year-old maltese-shih tzu cross, was returned to Lisa Pauchenet last Friday by Brimbank Council officers after being reported wandering around Kings Park and being identified through a microchip.

“I’ve had Bella since the day after she was born to a litter of one of my father’s dogs, so I was distraught when she ran off,” Ms Pauchenet said. “I put up flyers, drove around every night and went on to Facebook.”

Despite moving to Nagambie, Ms Pauchenet said she never gave up hope of finding Bella.

“I could hardly believe it when my mother got the call from Brimbank Council to say she’d been found and identified, thanks to the microchip.”

Brimbank animal management officer Laura Robinson said: “It’s rare to have such a happy ending after so much time has passed.”

Ms Pauchenet said Bella has since been shaved, and will not stop licking her face.

“Bella is back to sleeping on my bed,” she said.
