What seems odd to me is that despite the chip implanted in the dog’s neck, it took a decade before anyone found the chip or called authorities. I thought the point of chips was an immediate identification. Ten years is a very long time. Makes you think twice about the efficacy of those chip implants. Maybe the old fashioned license plate around the neck with the name of the dog, and the owners address and phone # made more sense.
The dog was very thin and in pretty rough shape. Doesn’t sound like anyone had taken it to a vet, so how would anyone find the chip?
Well clearly someone had the dog all this time and didn’t want to find the original owners.
