Can you even imagine what it would be like you if were in a relationship with someone, you bought a dog with them, then you broke up and they sold the dog without warning you? That is exactly what happened to one woman in the UK. It is an almost unthinkable scenario, and to try to imagine yourself in her situation is awful and heart breaking. Great news, though. You know we wouldn’t tell you unless it had a happy ending.
The woman and the dog reunited! Though she was at a point when she lost all hope, the dog had been microchipped, and the new couple who ended up buying the dog had to give it up because they were moving, so years later, someone ended up checking the info. They found out the new owners never had the info on the microchip changed over, and it registered as the woman’s dog. The same dog she thought had been sold away years later. As much as you don’t want to imagine being her for most of the story, for that reunion, she must have been the happiest person in the world.
This proves two of the points we make a lot on this site, and will make many times more. I am writing a whole article about it after this, as a matter of fact. Have your dogs microchipped! This story has a happy ending for that exact reason. And many other dog stories have happy endings because of microchips, too. It is a small investment to make that can make all the difference down the road for you and your dog.
Also, this story proves our other theory. Never lose hope.
