Sissy, a miniature schnauzer, was reunited with owner Nancy Franck at Mercy Medical Center, where Franck was recovering from a cancer-related surgery, the Associated Press reported.

A security guard used the information on her tags to call Franck's husband, who had been searching frantically since Sissy went missing several hours hours before.
