A Jack Russell terrier that somehow ended up in Oregon more than four months after she went missing from her home near Philadelphia is going to be flown back to the Keystone State. A microchip implanted in Gidget allowed workers at an animal shelter south of Portland to find the dog’s owner. Shelter manager Deborah Wood says PetLink, the company that manufactured the microchip, has offered to pay for her return flight.
