This beautiful boy was found in #Chicago #IL on 8/21/2019. The finder, Jesse did all the right things to get him home!
He took this sweetheart to a vet to get scanned for a microchip, and was told it was a dead-end, unregistered chip.
After posting on a neighborhood page, Jesse was suggested to register with Lost Dogs Illinois and to submit the microchip information to us at microchip hunters!
I checked the microchip information, and found that the microchip was implanted in Miami and was able to get the owner information from the Miami-Dade County Animal Services.
I left voicemails and texts in English and in Spanish, and looked up the address! I asked another Lost Dogs Illinois volunteer, Ray, to help post flyers near his address because she lived nearby. I also asked another volunteer, Mayra, to leave a message in Spanish for me on the voicemail just in case! I kept trying to find any way to contact Juan!
After 4 days, I was shocked to hear from Juan! He spoke perfect English. He had gotten a new phone, and finally was able to listen to my messages on his non-working phone! He has a new phone number and address. Juan said, "I heard you found my dog! Someone left the door open and he got out! We were so worried about him!" He was happy to hear that he was with a finder, and Jesse the finder contacted him right away!
Jesse said, "our pup and us are sad to say goodbye to such a sweet boy, but he was over the moon when he saw his dad."
Thank you so much for taking care of Shadow Jesse, and all you did to get him back to his family. Juan called me to let me know how happy Shadow and he are, and to say thanks.
Welcome home Shadow from Miami...found 8/21/2019; reunited 8/26/2019. You bring love to all that know you.
