Today, Chicago Animal Care and Control sent over the microchip information to Microchip Hunters for a little Yorkie. They left a message for the family, but hadn't heard back yet.
I tried the number on the microchip registration and got an answer. The owner asked if I speak Spanish, and I don't speak fluently but he did pretty well. When I mentioned Zeus being found he was so happy! He said he and his wife would be back in town this weekend, but that his son could pick Zeus up, so I told him I would text him the reclaim information for someone else to pick up their dog.
When I entered his phone number to text him, I was so surprised! I had been texting with him in April of 2021 when I posted him as missing to Lost Dogs Illinois! I asked if he was missing all this time and he said, yes he was! He told me his wife has been crying she is so happy! Little Zeus went missing from #Chicago #IL on 4/12/2021. We reshared his post to Lost Dogs Illinois a couple of times and no luck.
The son went to pick Zeus up, and we heard from Chicago Animal Control that Zeus was very happy to see his human brother! We missed getting a reunion video, but asked the family to send one when they get home from their family visit out of state! We wanted to share this great news in the meantime.
Microchips Work! Microchips Work! Microchips Work! You never know when you will get that call that your dog was found!
Missing 4/21/2021 Reunited 8/11/2022 Welcome home Zeus!!! The rest of your family will be home with you soon!
