Pet Profile Rescue wanted to ensure a family wasn't looking for this very skinny and fragile 15 year old Schnauzer that came from Animal Control, so they sent a message to Microchip Hunters.. Animal Control was unable to reach the owner from the outdated microchip information.
After some research, I found a connection to someone that shared addresses together. They are no longer together, and circumstances led to them having to rehome Stewart in 2013. Elizabeth let her 'ex' also know Stewart was found, and wasn't in good condition, but she told me that she misses him so much and regretted having to rehome him back then. She is living in California now, but let me know she wanted to fly in to pick him up and that she would love to have him back in their lives. She wanted to 'bring her boy home.' She has the means and the time needed for Stewart. She had him for the first 7 years of his life, and her daughter was so excited to hear about him too!
Chris from Pet Profile spent a lot of time helping Stewart get to a healtier weight to fly, getting him vetted, and to ensure his health was good enough for airplane travel, and today Elizabeth flew in from California and brought her dog home. She is so happy he is back with them. Chris told me "he fell asleep on her lap, he is home." Though this wasn't easy, Stewart will be living his senior years with his family he spent the first 7 years of his life with. That has to be comforting in some way.
Thank you Chris for working with the family and for sending the chip to microchip hunters to help reunite this little senior. Chris said she was "glad everything aligned."
