Dog taken from Illinois 8 years ago found in Kona
HONOLULU — A dog taken from its owner in Illinois has been found in Kailua-Kona eight years later.
Sheryl Jans lost her Boston terrier named “Koki” after a breakup with her boyfriend.
She found out a couple of weeks ago that someone had left her pet at the Hawaii Humane Society shelter in Kona.
Humane Society dispatcher Oliana Villanueva said shelter employees checked on the microchip embedded in Koki to locate her owner and eventually found Jans.
Jans said her ex-boyfriend and his mother had apparently moved to Hawaii a couple of years ago.
She’s trying to raise money to fly to Hawaii to reunite with her dog.
