Toby the Neighborhood Tourist
Not all dogs who wander remain lost.
Toby the 7-month old Chow Chow went missing one day from his yard in Wisconsin. Eleven days later, after reporting him missing to AKC Reunite, his owners were still canvassing the neighborhood, putting up flyers, and going door to door searching for him. During their search, a family member returned home and lo and behold, Toby was just sitting in the yard, dirty but otherwise very healthy! His family has no idea where he was for 11 days or how he wandered home, but they are thrilled to have him back!
With the dangers of busy streets and speeding cars, pet theft, and other loose animals, Toby was lucky to have made it home unscathed. But if Toby becomes a frequent flyer and makes wandering away from home a habit, he might not be as fortunate. That’s why AKC Reunite is here 24/7 to protect dogs like Toby that could wander. At AKC Reunite, we encourage all pet owners to increase their pet’s protection by enrolling them with our recovery service, so we can notify pet owners when their lost pet has been found!
