Chicago Animal Control sent Microchip Hunters the information for this senior Chocolate Lab. He is 13! It wasn't registered, and the owner information attached was outdated.
I was able to find a number for a family member, and she called me back right away to let me know that "Sosa" was given to their neighbor many years ago when he was young. I sent her a photo, and she confirmed it was him, and said she would look for Jennifer's phone number for me. She also told me that if they couldn't pick him up that they would go and get him. They visit Sosa from time to time.
When I called Jennifer and asked if she was missing a dog named Sosa, she said OMG yes! Where was he? He has been gone for three weeks! I let her know how we received her information, and she had no idea that he was microchipped! She was so happy!
I gave Jennifer the information to reclaim Sosa. Jennifer told me they had Sosa since he was a baby, and that her grandchildren were also missing him so much. Her 8 year old grandchild wanted to miss school today to go get him!
Sosa went home today, and we will be helping make sure that his microchip gets registered to Jennifer, just in case!
Welcome home Sosa, we knew somebody was missing you! We are so happy that you had a microchip to get you home!
