Help from the downstairs neighbor!
Beca's microchip was a dead-end. Chicago Animal Control sent it to microchip hunters.
Microchip Hunters was having trouble finding any information for the owner on file, so checked into families at the same address. I was able to make contact with the family living below, and they knew that their upstairs neighbor had a little dog. Matter of fact, they said they have two little dogs and asked if the other one was also found! They went upstairs to let the family know to call me.
Meanwhile, I checked petharbor, and saw another little Chihuaha that didn't have a microchip. His stray hold was up the next day. I heard from the family just after, but they didn't speak English. They put their young daughter on the phone and I let her know where their dogs were. She told me the other's dog name is Hunter, and they will get to animal control the next day.
When they went to pick them up, they were told they had to be spayed and neutered, and the daughter called me to let me know. They were glad, and I was happy to hear they were there. Lost Dogs Illinois paid the fee for Beca, and the family paid the fee for Hunter to go home. They were extremely grateful.
The microchip will be updated!
Welcome home little ones. You are loved.
