That's how long it had been since Michael Greer of Palm Springs lost his six-year-old terrier named Scruffy.
Officer Paul Villanueva found him wandering the streets in Indio and picked him up.
Turns out Scruffy had a microchip and that's how they got to Greer.
Well, Greer went on a business trip and left his dog with a friend.
But somehow Scruffy got loose.
Where has Scruffy been for the last year??
If only dogs could talk.
