SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA – This is a happy story – one of reunion, a caring person, a lost dog and the value of the microchip.
The little fellow, weighing just nine pounds, was found earlier in August in Otay Mesa, California. He will soon be reunited with his real family, all the way in Arkansas. The real puzzle here is how he ended up so far away from his home. No one knows what really happened to the little dog to lead him so far afield. It is certain that he did not get to California on his own. Animal Services are just pleased that he can return to his real home.
The little fellow is an adult Pomeranian. The adorable dog was found on August 6 by a caring person who brought him to the Bonita county shelter. Animal Services at the shelter, discovered the little dog’s real identity. Koda, 8, is owned by a young family in Rogers, Arkansas. The source of identification turned out to be Koda’s implanted microchip that told his story.
Stories of pets such as Koda being reunited with their owners prove that having your animal microchipped is truly your pet's ticket home.
Amidst the mystery of how Koda arrived in San Diego, so far away from Arkansas, he gets to fly home to his real owner, Stephanie Roberts and two playmate children. His transportation charges are being provided by the Foundation for the Care of Indigent Animals.
It goes without saying that implanted microchips have proven themselves invaluable time and time again.
