Another family tried to keep the lost Pit Bull — from Ashley N. in Austin, TX
My dog’s name is Blew. My husband and I lost him at a shopping center. He jumped out of the car and he went missing for 11 days. My husband and I put up posters and put ads on websites. Of course, he also had his microchip.
On the eleventh day, the people who found him tried to take him to a vet … and get him checked as their dog. The vet had the alert from HomeAgain and, when they scanned Blew, it showed that we had reported him missing. The couple could not take him and Animal Control was called. We were contacted and asked to pick Blew up at the animal shelter.
I was so happy and relieved that we found our Blew thanks to HomeAgain! We missed him dearly and just want to thank you and say how appreciative we are that the microchip helped bring him home.
