What a sweet story! :hearts: It's kind of scary to think that microchips could register wrong though.

I wonder how the poor old guy reacted to his mom...did he recognize her after so long?

Now that is a story worth reading.:cheer2: :cheer2:

It does bring two things to mind however.

1. Register your chip and ensure it is done properly.

2. Keep the information current. If you move and change address and phone number let the chip people know.

I cannot tell you how amny dogs come into rescue with a chip where the information is bad. Sometimes you are lucky and can trace the owners but others you cannot.

I am glad that Buddy found him a home, but I really don't believe the story. I have had dogs leave here and not see them for a year and people have changed their names (Twistifer is one of them) and you better believe that dog STILL knows its original name and they also know their people. Being with someone for 14 years straight, I just can't see it. I used Twistifer and Twistie with Girrl when I saw her at the NEOD pictnic and she remembered the name AND she remembered me!

It is possible that Buddy did not find his real owners....you are right, a dog would still remember his owners after 14 years being with them and would remember the name. Maybe he looked so much like the dog the owners lost and just think he is there dog... something to think about,, I am glad he got another home though and it not wandering the streets, he looks so cute in his blue jacket :angel7:

I am ecstatic for Buddy and his family, it was just my observation of the story. I am sure ALL will be extremely happy and who knows, maybe some angel sent him to this home. You never know, his true owners may have died and the family set him loose. it is sad his travels took him a year to find a warm and comfortable place to call home. It is definately a Win/Win situation for all concerned :)
