JACKSON, MS (WLBT) -

We have a heartwarming story of reunion between a young woman and her beloved pet. The Mattie Grace, was lost. but now found after being featured on our Fox 40 Pet of the Week segment.  

Three months ago the Chihuahua made a break for it from her Florence yard. 

"We let her outside  to go tee tee and she never came back, according to Amanda McFarland. "And we were devastated. We looked for her and looked for her forever." 

By chance, a good Samaritan found her and took her in. But things changed, she could no longer care for the happy little pup. Heidi was taken to the Mississippi Animal Rescue League and recently selected for adoption.  

Amanda's owner never lost hope; never gave up the search for her missing pet.
 
As fate would have it, Heidi's photo was featured on Facebook by our Meteorologist Julia Weiden on Tuesday.

"I looked on Facebook," said Amanda. "I'm friends with the Mississippi Animal rescue league and I saw her photo and I knew it was her.
 I saw her and she clawed me to death and she was so excited."

 "Oh...she remembers us, oh I'm so glad she's here," added Amanda

Turns out Heidi's original name is actually Mattie Grace. She's been with Amanda since she was 6 weeks old.  A reunion at the Mississippi Animal Rescue League was one of overwhelming joy and heartfelt thanks to the good Samaritan who found Amanda's dog wandering the streets three months ago.

"A woman that took care of the 2 year old pet," said Amanda, "I thank God for that. I thought I would never see her again. It was like a dream come true."  

Mattie Grace will get her vaccinations up to date and be spayed. Then it's back to her fur-ever home with Amanda.
