Bounder the Eagerly Awaiting Golden

Sometimes dogs that don’t wander can still go missing. Bounder’s owner, Kitty, knows that fact all too well from when her precious dog was taken out of her front yard.

Bounder, a 10-year old Golden Retriever has mastered the skill of obedience and is even certified as a R.E.A.D. (Reading Education Assistance Dog) and passed the AKC Canine Good Citizen test! Bounder lives on a sheep ranch in Colorado where there are multiple residents and tenants tending to the ranch. With people coming and going often, Bounder always has ample opportunities to explore, yet he chooses to stay by his house.

One day, Bounder was at the end of his driveway waiting for Kitty to come home from work. Before Kitty made it home, a woman driving past the house assumed he was lost and took him away in her car! Thankfully her intentions were pure, and she immediately called the AKC Reunite phone number on Bounder’s collar tag to report Bounder as “lost” – and Kitty and Bounder were quickly reunited.

Even if your pet has a collar-tag on like Bounder, they can still be regarded as lost. If your pet only has a collar tag, they aren’t fully protected. Microchip and enroll your pets with AKC Reunite so if someone takes your pet, regardless of intention, we can help reunite you with your pet ASAP!
