This is an amazing story! It started sad. A puppy got stolen.
But it ended happy. The pup was found!
Thanks to a microchip. Thankfully the owner had him microchipped and thy could be contacted.
Never mind they lived in LA and the dog was in Michigan. That didn’t stop them. A Facebook campaign to raise the money for the airfare got the family intact again.
They way microchips work is that the shelter or whoever finds the pet can call a number and the microchip company can call the owner and notify them.
More than twice the amount of dogs can be returned to the rightful owner if the dog is microchipped. A good lesson to remember.
MISSAUKEE COUNTY — It turns out a small dog found last month near Lake City had been missing for more than 4 months.
He’ll soon be back home, but home isn’t in northern Michigan.
Senor Santiago is his name, Santee for short. He’s a Chihuahua and he’s a long way from home.
Santee was found on the side of the road about three weeks ago.
Cold and shivering he was brought to the Missaukee Humane Society shelter on M-55 east of Lake City.
Shortly after arriving, he was scanned to see if he had a micro-chip.
