Iraq Vet-Firefighter Rescues Teen From Burning Building on Christmas

WATCH: Marine Son's Selfie Surprise Makes Mom's Christmas Wish Come True

A Yorkshire terrier that disappeared out a doggy door turned up three years later and 200 miles away, just in time for Christmas.

Someone found Rexxn on the street in a Detroit suburb and took him to an animal shelter, and a microchip helped workers track down owners Ta'Shina and Darrin Green all the way in Columbus, Ohio.

When he was first rescued, Rexxn's fur was matted and he was covered in fleas, but he's been doing well since being returned home in mid-December.

When Ta'Shina talked to the shelter, she told "Fox and Friends Weekend," she was in tears "because it just seemed so unreal."

Darrin Green said it took Rexxn some time to feel things out, but after he got in the car and got back home, "it started to connect for him."
