About to be put up for adoption, lost dog reunited with tearful owner

A lost dog from Kenner who wound up on the westbank was shaved, clipped, micro-chipped and put up for adoption before finally finding himself in the arms of his owner Monday night. \
Delores Black thought she'd never see her mother's beloved dog Nero again. Nero got out of an open door at a new family home in Kenner. He was picked up by someone from the road, who brought him to a rescue center when he didn't get along with their dog.
Nero, who is blind in one eye, and approaching eight years of age, was Black's one link with her mother, who had recently passed away.
Nero had been gone for two months and Black had given up hope - almost. Puppy Rescue had taken care of Nero and was about to try to adopt him out when they saw an ad on Craig's List that described him to a "T."
