When Sasha came in to Chicago Animal Care and Control, her microchip information provided two outdated phone numbers and addresses. Microchip Hunters were sent the information.
I found a working phone number for Joy, but it was out of state. I called and was glad to hear an outgoing message with her name, so left a voicemail and sent a text, along with a photo of Sasha.
I got a text back, "Oh my God! My baby! Yes She was mine and I had to give her up to another family about 9 years ago! Oh my God where'd you find her? And I did have her microchipped. I'm literally I tears" Joy asked me what was going on, and told me she would reach out to her friend to contact the family that her friend helped rehome her to.
The family that took Sasha in wasn't being very responsive, but were told where she was. "They are fully aware." Joy told me right from the first conversation that she would love to have her if the family doesn't want her, and that she now has 2 other dogs.
Joy made arrangements with her family, and made sure everything was ready before coming to get Sasha. She also was giving time for the owner she was rehomed to. She let me know that she would be picking her up Saturday late afternoon.
Sunday, I received a text. "I just wanted to follow up. I got her home she's adjusting well. I just gave her a bath and she's loving me like she never left. She's been by my side all night and today." Sasha remembers Joy, and now likes her 13 year old son. She also gets along with her 2 dogs. She is unsure of the 2 year old, but Joy said 'she has always been a good girl.'
