Cleo, a four-year-old Yellow Lab, and her family relocated away from their Missouri home in 2018. Cleo, on the other hand, seemed to have a harder problem moving than the rest of her family. She went missing from their Olathe, Kansas home on July 12th, 2020.
Meanwhile, a couple in Lawson, Missouri, received a surprise when they arrived home. Cleo was sleeping on their front porch as if she had just moved in. She used to, after all. Cleo, clearly, never forgot! When Colton Michael and his wife Britney attempted to approach Cleo, she refused to let them get close. Colton reasoned that she was probably perplexed as to why strangers were at her home. “When she returns home, she discovers that it is occupied by strangers. That would be frightening for everyone.”
Cleo’s microchip was tested by Colton and Britney. They learned she belonged to the individuals who used to live in their home at that point. The former owners had recently posted about their missing dog on Facebook. No one could have predicted she’d wind up 57 miles away in Missouri, at their old residence! Drew, a member of Cleo’s family, told KMBC News that he has no idea how she traveled so far away. He’s overjoyed to see her again. “It’s the strangest narrative I’ve ever heard. She is truly everything to us and my mum.”
Cleo’s journey from point A to point B remains a mystery. Some speculate that Cleo made it a long way to her new home in Kansas, but was discovered by someone who had her microchip scanned along the way. The microchip was linked to an address in Missouri. Cleo’s whereabouts are unknown, however, it’s possible that whoever found her dropped her off at her home.
However, I’ve witnessed some incredible things from dogs, so I’m prepared to think Cleo traveled the entire distance! Cleo seemed to miss her family more than she missed her old dwelling. When they arrived to pick her up, she greeted them with joy. Colton promised Drew that he’d keep an eye out for any Cleo sightings in the future. “Now that we know who she belongs to, we’ll know who to call if she shows up again.” Cleo, perhaps, will quickly come to embrace her new surroundings. Maybe she will once she finds her family is not included in the sale of the old house.
