GREEN BAY, Wisc. -- A dog who disappeared from Tucson two months ago has turned up 1,800 hundred miles away near Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Nicholas disappeared in October. His owner, Linda Baldazo, says he apparently snuck out through an unlocked gate at her home.

Nicholas was found on the streets near Green Bay and thanks to an implanted microchip, the Bay Area Humane Society was able to track him back to his owner.

Baldazo says she believes a snowbird may have picked him up in Tucson and flown him all that way.

"It's amazing that he's over there," Baldazo said. "I wonder, if only he could tell us the story of how he got over there, I would love to hear it, haha, if he could only talk."

Baldazo is working on getting the funds to fly to Wisconsin to bring her little guy home. Baldazo has to fly to Wisconsin to pick him up, but being a single mom of a little girl, she doesn't have the money for the flight.

A veterinarian said it's too cold to send him on the plane to Tucson in the cargo area.
