Dog's owner comes forward

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

A Saginaw woman is grateful to be reunited with her dog.

8-year-old Africa was found by police wandering about Sunday night in Saginaw.

Wind chills were near zero at the time.

Her owner, Sandy Smith said Africa got out when the back door was left open after her nephew went outside to shovel snow.

She picked her dog up from animal control, and credits TV5 for her good fortune.

"I seen her on the news and was like, that is my dog, that is my dog," Smith said. "And I've had her since she was a baby, and I'm so happy she's home with me right now."

Had Africa's owner not been found, she would have been adopted out.
