Chevy originally belonged to an over-the-road truck driver. He left Chevy with a friend, who in turn asked a neighbor family to dog-sit. When the trucker came home, he saw how happy Chevy was with her new family, and especially how much Chevy loved the family's kids. He agreed to leave Chevy with the family. But, he said, if they ever changed their minds about keeping her, he wanted Chevy back.
Fast forward two years: The adoptive family needed to relocate from their Texas town and couldn't take Chevy along. They wanted to honor their promise to get Chevy back to her first home. But the neighbor who knew the trucker had moved and the trucker had also moved. The family didn’t know how to find the trucker.
Fortunately, Chevy had a microchip. This was an easy one! A Microchip Hunter contacted the phone number registered to the chip and heard back three minutes later.
“Yes, Chevy was my dog! Yes, I want her back!”
In fact, the trucker had recently moved back, so Chevy doesn't even have to relocate to a new town. Happy endings all around!
Lost Dogs of Texas is happy this Texas dog is going home!
