We all know that microchips can help get dogs and cats who go missing home safe. But what about a man who goes missing? A man who suffers from Alzheimer’s managed to walk out of his sister’s house with her two dogs while she was working in the garden. The man was taking the dogs for a walk but quickly got disoriented and confused finding himself lost with the two dogs. The dogs weren’t service dogs or special therapy dogs for the man they were family pets. He wandered around the streets for a while before someone stopped to offer him help.
The man said he needed help so he was taken with the dogs to the local Fire Station where the firefighters worked on trying to find where the man came from. He hadn’t been reported missing in fact his sister didn’t even know he was missing yet as she was still in the garden. The man had no ID on him the only clue the firemen had were the two dogs. They looked for ID tags on the dogs and found their microchip information. It was with that information from the two dogs that they were able to find their owner the mans sister and get him home safely.
Thanks to the microchip collars around Kizzi and Amigo necks that were meant to keep them safe if they got loose and wandered off it ended up being the key to getting Stan back to where he belonged with his sister.
