This purebred 10 month old chocolate lab showed up Sunday about 10am wearing only a rabies tag.
The wife runs a vet hospital so about 2pm (after he wouldn't go home) she went and picked up a Home Again scanner but this puppy wasn't chipped.
Luckily this am she called the vet who issued the tag and they knew the pooch. Needless to say the owners are ecstatic and this dog's reward for running off (at least 5 miles from my house) is he got neutered this am.
If your pooch goes outside, I'd recommend getting it chipped and make sure it has some form of ID and contact info on his collar.
