CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A Charlotte family is reunited with their dog.

Kisha Buckingham and her children let their Pomeranian, Lyon, out Friday morning. He was able to get out through an unlatched gate when he wandered off.

The family posted signs around the neighborhood for a missing dog, and the next day they spotted a sign in the neighborhood for a found dog.

They made the call, and a complete stranger helped to reunite Lyon with his loved ones. He's back home and doing okay.

God bless her, we thank her so, so, so much, said Buckingham of the stranger who kept Lyon throughout the night.

Buckingham says Lyon is more than a dog he s also part of her support system as she battles stage 4 cancer.
