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. (opens new window)

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!
