Employees of a Harvard animal shelter helped reunite a 6-year-old female Siberian Husky named Shakira with her owner after five years, the McHenry County Sheriff’s office said.

McHenry County Sheriff’s Offices Criminal Investigation Bureau received a phone call from a Chatsworth, Ga., resident Friday about her lost Siberian Husky, Shakira, who was lost or stolen in December 2007.

Personnel at the rescue said Shakira arrived at the shelter in August. And was scheduled to be euthanized at a shelter in Murray County, Ga., until she was rescued by Free Spirit. At the Harvard shelter, personnel discovered Shakira had a microchip and contacted Home Again Pet ID who then contacted Jackson.
