Boston Terrier Swiftly Reunited Despite Microchip Error

Reunited Boston Terrier

Another Happy Reunion
Thanks to Pet FBI Ohio Facebook

 

This 10 year old Boston Terrier named  “ABK” had been missing for about a week when his Dad posted to Facebook/PetFBI Ohio.
Super sleuth Teresa and her niece Cara immediately launched into action researching other sources of information and came up with a match on Craigslist.  However, when the Good Sam “Mindy” was contacted she insisted it could not be the same dog because ABK  was described as having a microchip and the dog she had found did not register a microchip when scanned. Char, our ace Facebook administrator was persistent however, and reasoned that in 10 years, a microchip may have migrated. So the family went to see the dog who had been found and a happy reunion ensued!
OBJECT LESSON:
1. Utilize all possible sources of information to post and to search
2. Do not discount a possible match because one piece of information does not fit
3. Microchips are not foolproof!
