Dexter is allowed outside during the day and every night he comes in. The night he got lost he didn’t come home. So, the next morning we started looking for him. We put up signs, tried an online program for calling homes in the neighborhood. For three weeks we searched, went to all the pounds and looked online every day until we gave up, thinking he was gone. Seven weeks later a lady found him in her yard. He was really thin and she took him to a shelter. It’s only by chance I got him microchipped when he was getting his shots. I’m glad I did.
