Thank you to the IDOT worker who noticed a little senior gray dog in a field and brought him to the Fire House nearby. He was severly matted, nearly blind, and deaf. The firehouse took him to Chicago Animal Care and Controlto look for his family, and thankfully when the microchip was a dead end they sent it to Microchip Hunters!
Though the microchip was a dead end (the implant facility did not have the chip number in their system so no owner information could be found), one of our microchip hunters recognized the dog right away, when shared to the group, as a dog from the area she is in often! She was messaged about him a few months ago, and has been keeping an eye out in the area ever since! Oreo was posted to Lost Dogs Illinois so owner information could quickly be found!
The owner was contacted and Oreo will be back home with his family soon, after a thorough vet exam and some care, but is doing fine.
Oreo's elderly owner was overjoyed to get the good news, and his family is excited to have him home for Christmas!
