    Debra Suierveld said about her daughter. Days before, about 10 miles away from the Suierveld home, George Speiring said he opened the door to his home and spotted a lab mix on his porch. He said he called police and the dog, which turned out to be Abby, eventually ended up at the animal shelter. The animal shelter then found the chip that connected Abby to her rightful owner. Abby looked almost like she never left home, aside from graying hair and a benign tumor. Her teeth are in good shape, her paws are in good shape, somebody took very good care of her.
