|I have a micro-chip. Does your dog have one?|
With the help of volunteers and a money raising effort, Seymour was reunited with Ryan Rivera, who placed the dog with a friendly family while his mother was undergoing chemotherapy and he was training for a deployment. When Rivera returned home, the family and his dog were gone.
Seymour was found, bedraggled and thin, wandering the streets of Madera. Now dog and trooper-owner have been reunited.
It is a throat-clutching, tear-provoking story. My take on it is: Rivera was lucky to have put a microchip in the dog, which allowed the people who found him to quickly contact SP4 Rivera, even though he was over 1,000 miles away.
Gizmo has a microchip, which was one of the requirements of adopting him. Your dog should definitely have a microchip.
