I received a call from the Humane Society at 8:30 a.m. telling me they had been contacted and someone in my community had found my dog. I was so worried I did not sleep the 7 hours that he was missing. The whole time I was thinking I hope someone calls since he has a chip. To my surprise he was not missing for long thanks to the microchip. I would advise everyone to purchase one for this same reason!
