Remarkable Reunion

After more than 3 years, Miley is reunited with her owners thanks to her microchip!

The little dog went missing in February of 2013 from her home outside Chicago, Illinois. Saturday night, April 2, 2016 she was placed in an overnight drop kennel at the Nebraska Humane Society with no paperwork or identifying tags.  She was well fed, but severely matted, with inch long nails and in desperate need of grooming. However, her microchip traced to owners who were flabbergasted to hear she was in our care. Once we assured the Rosas that Miley, was, indeed, at NHS, Ruben and his son immediately set out the morning of April 4 on the eight hour car ride to reclaim her.

In the meantime, our groomer, got to work shearing off huge mats from her ears, legs, body and tail…and she was wiggly and happy for the reunion!  

“We are so happy that you had her and called us!” said Ruben. “We had gotten several calls that were false leads…so to finally get her back is amazing! My wife will be so happy.”

Microchips can bring pets home, even after years.  Don’t delay, microchip today.
