MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) — Mark Wessells didn't think he'd ever see his dog again after leaving it with his father in Virginia, but it appears the 2-year-old black Labrador retriever had a case of homesickness.

The SunNews of Myrtle Beach reports (http://bit.ly/TKnUtf ) that a week after leaving the dog behind while he moved into a Myrtle Beach home, Wessells' father called to say the dog was gone. He feared it had been stolen.

Brett Gallagher found the lab in a Carolina Forest subdivision about two weeks ago. He asked around the neighborhood, but nobody had reported a missing dog. When Gallagher took the dog in for a checkup, a veterinarian found a microchip identifying it as Buck.

Wessells says he doesn't know how he feels, but says he's glad his dog is back.
