How important is the microchip registration?
Ask Lola's family, who waited 99 days for this call!
Lola went missing on 6/5/2022 in #Bridgeview #IL and a Good Samaritan in a blue/green minivan was thought to have picked her up. Posts and flyers were out all over the area, but no word of Lola. Lost Dogs Illinois had her posted and had reshared her post as well. The family also rented signs, still nothing!
As we always stress, Lola's family contacted the microchip company and made sure to update all the contact information.
Yesterday, someone found a little Yorkie in Blue Island, IL. The Blue Island Police took her in, and a Good Samaritan held her while looking for her family. She posted to Lost Dogs Illinois and had her rescanned for her microchip. She was chipped! She sent it to our LDI volunteer who is with Microchip Hunters. It was LOLA! Her microchip showed an update on 6/16/22. I left a vm and text to the owner, and he replied to my text, "that looks like our LOLA!" I had no idea it was THIS Lola until the family texted me that they had her back, and that she was missing 3 months and a few days (but who is counting).
Lola's family said "the odd thing is their other dog Tigger, her buddy, was extremely excited yesterday and kept me up all night every 20 minutes wanting to go out. "
Lola's family went to get her right away! "Lola recognized the minute we turned in the subdivision, she recognized our house, and after a brief check of the main floor she ran up stairs to the master bathroom to see if her couch that she sleeps on in the master bedroom is still there. I got a kick out of that. Tigger recognized her immediately."
Thank you again to the Cindy S. who took Lola in and checked for her microchip. You got her back to her family!
"I am just happy to get her back and I owe it to you and the Blue Island police, will be for ever grateful. The fact that her buddy new somehow that she was out and on her way I wish I could have recorded how he was acting last night as if he knew something, I believe people would be amazed at his determination and assistance to go out to search for her. I believe they have a superior sense and are able to realize things, they are really inseparable, and it took her getting lost for me to realize the bond that they have for each other."
Microchip your pets, and make sure the registration is always current!
