Lost dog reunites with guardian after three years

In Animal News on June 17, 2009 at 7:13 pm

A happy reunion between dog and guardian was accomplished yesterday. The dog was found in Denver, more than a 1,000 miles away from his home in Louisville, KY.

Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health’s HomeAgain Pet Recovery Service and Denver Dumb Friends League were able to identify the dog by a microchip.

Abby, a 7-year-old Beagle mix, became separated from her guardian three years ago while on a trip to Alabama. She was found without a collar or ID tag. A concerned resident in a Denver suburb took the dog to Dumb Friends league where she was scanned.

Lucky for Abby that she was microchipped and her guardian’s information had been updated. “The staff is relieved when we scan a pet for a microchip and are able to identify and reunite it with it’s owner. Microchipping doesn’t locate every animal, but it does keep hope alive and does make miracles like this happen,” said Sean Lehman, the spokesperson for the Dumb Friends League, in a Denver Daily News report. —Jillian Wolande
