Check out the flyer that got this 15 year old Schipperke home, and the adorable reunion photo!
Carolina, a good samaritan in Florida, found this little senior Schipperke and knew he had to be missed! She registered him on helpinglostpets.com so he could be posted on the Lost Dogs Floridapage. She took him in to get him scanned for a microchip, and because it was unregistered, sent it to microchiphelp.com so #microchiphunterscan try and help get this little sweetie home.
It was an unregistered AVID chip, that was implanted by an animal hospital in Texas. This animal hospital had no owner information for us. This truly was a dead end microchip.
I got back to Carolina, and let her know we couldn't help track the owner through the microchip, but suggested she get flyers out in the area he was lost. Carolina is wonderful, and said she was at work, but would get flyers out after work. She told me, " I'm so sure they are looking for him he is such a gentle old man. He ate well and is sleeping in a crate while I'm at work. He doesn't bark or whine."
A few hours later, I received a text, "FOUND THE OWNER!!!!," and a photo that followed. It was a photo of a handwritten flyer, shown below. Carolina was so happy! She said the flyer was up at the exact location she found him, and that Julio was coming to pick him up early evening. "He got him from a breeder in Texas at the age of one. He is now a 15 year old senior. He is so happy. He said he will be responsible and register him."
Carson is now home! Julio was overjoyed that he was safe and cared for. Carolina told me, "Thanks so much for the support! It meant a lot to know I had a team looking for his owners with me." Thank YOU Carolina. We all appreciate what you did for little Carson.
