I texted Cindy to let her know we received her microchip hunters form, and would be getting started on helping find the owners of the two dogs she found, one with a microchip and one without!
Cindy replied: "I'm going to give it best shot, but I'm not hopeful. I fear they were abandoned, but they are really good dogs! So I know somebody loved them and taught them well! We walked the street, put flyers on telephone poles and under neighbors door mats. We plan on in the next day or two actually walking the dogs up and down the street. Very much appreciate your help and hope you will provide more insight than what I have. They are extremely bonded, so much so that the poodle broke loose today twice and immediately came back. He will not leave without his buddy. I'm doing everything in my power to keep these two together which is why I have them at my house versus turning them into a shelter."
After spending much time trying non-working or incorrect numbers for family members, I decided to call a neighbor of the address the microchip was registered to (Home Again), since the dogs were found not too far from there. A wonderful woman said she knew the neighbor, but didn't see them much. She graciously put her son on the phone and he was so kind to go over and give them a message to call me.
Not five minutes later, I received a call from the owner, and he confirmed they were missing two dogs and gave me their names. The one matched the name on the microchip, so I knew all was good!
Cindy connected with the owner, and not only reunited them, but is in touch with them to help them with the additional neutering and microchipping for Grunon!
It is heartwarming to know there are kind people like Cindy helping dogs and their families stay together. Thank you so very much for going out of your way to help them additionally with Grunon! You are truly wonderful!
Look at the love for these dogs in the photo!
