We wish everyone would send microchip numbers to microchiphelp.com any time they can't reach an owner from a chip. A worried family can be waiting for a call.
Rosie was found early this afternoon, wearing a tag with her name and number from out of state that wasn't getting anywhere. Microchip Hunters got a message about this, and reached out to the finder, and learned that Rosie also had a microchip with owner information that wasn't current. The number belonged to someone else.
I found a working number for a family member, who told me that Rosie's owner moved out of state and that Rosie belongs to their friend, Alberto. He told me he would have Alberto call me.
Minutes later, I received a call. Alberto told me that they were taking Rosie for a vet appointment, and a movie was being filmed. A gunshot sound went off, and Rosie took off! Alberto said nobody helped him, and they couldn't find her. He said his wife was crying all day.
I gave the finder Alberto's number and they went to pick her up right away! Thank you so much to this finder for taking Rosie in for them; they are so grateful. Thanks for this sweet photo of them picking her up also!
I will be helping get this microchip information changed over to this new family, just in case she gets out again, and Lost Dogs Illinois will send a new ID tag for her.
