Missing Dog Returns After 9 Years

A German Shepherd named Astro went missing from his family. Nine years later, the family receives a call from Animal Control having identified Astro by his microchip. (source: The Associated Press).

This heart-warming story should remind us of the importance of microchips, dog ID tags, and secure collars.

If you tend to travel a lot, consider a Missing Dog Emergency Kit for the dog carer:
