One lucky pooch is set to return home after going missing for four months and ending up a staggering 3,000 miles away from home!

Little Gidget went missing from her home in Pennsylvania, U.S, back in April, and was only recently found in the state of Oregon.

The adventurous dog was spotted earlier this month in a Portland suburb and taken to the Bonnie L.Hays Animal Shelter.

Fortunately the seven-year-old pet's microchip meant staff were able to track her owner, where they discovered she'd been missing since 22 April!

Gidget's owner – who wishes to remain anonymous – didn't have the cash to fly her furry friend home.

However PetLink, the company that manufactured the mutt's microchip, have confirmed they will kindly stump up for the flight.

And they're not the only ones who are keen to reunite Gidget with her owner. People from all over the country offered dosh to pay for the flight, including a woman from Washington and an ex-East Coast governor.

One kind chap even visited the dog shelter and forked out for the pup's expenses!

It's unsure what the cheeky canine has been up to for the last months, but despite being thin, all was well with the dog.

Donna Wood, manager of the Animal Services for Washington County was quoted in The Associated Press talking about Gidget's trip.

"We have no idea how she came from Pennsylvania to Oregon, but we are thrilled that she will be going home safe and sound."

She also explained that the owner is extremely grateful for everyone's generosity.

We wonder if their reunion will be anything like the dog who fainted? Either way, it's bound to be tail wagging-worthy occasion!
