Reunited via teamwork

A beautiful Husky Cross was found running loose in North London, by a gentleman called Martin on New Year’s Day. He tried to contact the authorities but got no response, so shared on social media to try to find the owner. He took the dog home and looked after him.
North London Dog Owners’ went into overdrive and shared widely to try and help too.
On Thursday this week another dog owner, Lora, suggested that the dog could perhaps be missing Honey who was listed on DogLost
CJ, one of the DogLost police liaison ladies, had been dealing with Martin and looked into the possibility. Honey wasn’t chipped and the Dog Warden still hadn’t attended to collect the found dog, so it was decided that we needed to go up to London and scan.
Well, what an unexpected result . . .
This dog had a chip, so wasn’t Honey; CJ contacted the owners and they’d been frantically looking for Shadow for 3 days. Not aware of DogLost and not on social media, they’d spoken to the police and been up to the Mayhew, but no luck.
They were over the moon and got in the car straight away to come and meet us to be reunited with their boy.
In this situation it really shows how important it is to have dogs chipped and to ensure that the details are kept up to date with the Microchip Companies, not just your vets.
Unfortunately Honey is still missing; so please continue to look out for her and contact stolen@doglost.co.uk or owner with any information. Thank you
Karen London co-ordinator.

    Thank you NickyB! on behalf of all co-ordinators,helpers and admin…Good to be appreciated…as you can imagine keeping up to date with this massive data base is hard work…but when we can match dogs up its worth it….Especially after many years when all trace of them was wiped off other systems or never traceable on FB with out a data base…Especial thanks to those that spend the time checking their local found dogs against our long term missing dogs from all over the country…We could not do it without you!

    If Dog Lost could create a poster that could be downloaded and printed out poster size that as many people as possible could distribute andplace on noticeboards, vets surgery etc, telling people how important it is to make sure your dog is chipped with accurate, up to date information. Also telling them how to get their dogs chip checked, who can do it, how to get it updated and how much it would cost. Telling owners how many dogs are found each year with out of date chip info. Maybe start a nationwide campaign? I am sure it would get a lot of support. Include the Dog Lost logo and contact details as you say in this last case the owner was not aware of Dog Lost. Is this a possibility?
