Dog taken from Ill. 8 years ago found in Kona

HONOLULU — A dog taken from its owner in Illinois has been found in Hawaii eight years later.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports that Sheryl Jans lost her Boston terrier named Koki after a breakup with her boyfriend.

She found out a couple of weeks ago that someone had left her pet at the Hawaii Island Humane Society shelter in Kona.

Jans said her ex-boyfriend and his mother had apparently moved to Hawaii a couple of years ago. She’s trying to raise money to fly to Hawaii to reunite with her dog.
