A woman from New Zealand has been reunited with her stolen dog after three long months thanks to the microchip embedded in the animal.
– A dog was stolen last April
– The culprit is still on the loose
– The owner of the dog was traced by microchip registration
A dog was stolen by an unknown person outside Burgerfuel New Lynn last April 18. Police released a video of the crime but the culprit has not yet been identified and found.
The dog somehow ended up wandering the roads of Manurewa. A kind family took the animal in and surrendered it to the Auckland Council Manukau animal shelter. Luckily, the dog has been microchipped so the owner was traced via the registration.
The owner had a very emotional reunion with her dog last Wednesday, almost three months the day the dog was stolen. The animal shelter reminds dog owners of incidents like this and how important it is to microchip your pets.
