There was a happy ending for a dog that became lost and was found a long way from home.

A couple in Arizona spotted a wandering dog while they were out 4-wheeling on New Year's Day. They traced the owner through the animal's rabies tag.

The dog belongs to an 86-year-old rancher in Junction, up in the Texas Hill Country. She was 800 miles from home.

The dog was picked up in Arizona Friday and the owner thinks she was scared by fireworks on New Year's Eve and ran away.

But it's still a mystery how she ended up all the way in Arizona.
