AKC Reunite

12118694_10207854403023060_2111145103347060670_nThe Importance of registering your microchip cannot be overstated. Halloween saw a Boise man’s dog end up at the shelter. He struggled to get his dog home. Click here to read his story. It ended well, but we want to remind all our clients to get their microchip registered.

Today Trigger is an integral part of his family’s life. He goes on most vacations and spends a lot of time hanging out. There are walks with Mom too!

What If???

Your Beloved Weimaraner Went Missing?

Would You Get Them Back?

Dear OwyheeStar Client,

IMG_0077Question–Did you register your pet’s AKC Reunite Microchip with AKC?

Almost two years ago we upgraded to this fabulous program called AKC Reunite. Anytime after spring 2014, your OwyheeStar Weimaraner Puppy came home with the AKC Reunite Microchip installed There was also paperwork in your packet to help you register that microchip.  If you have not registered the AKC Reunite Microchip with the AKC Reunite Organization we urge you to do so.

Cliff is aware of the number of chips registered, but not to whom they were registered. If you have lost your paperwork just have your Vet office scan for the microchip and use the number to get them registered. Having them associated with the AKC Reunite Program might pay off in ways you never dream. Please read on about Trigger’s recent experience.

Trigger Went Missing

Here he is on his way home after we got him back!

Thank you, thank you thank you for microchipping your pups before they leave your home. Our Trigger is now safe at home. Our daughter accidently left.our gate open and we couldn’t find him. So relieved to get a text saying our pet has been found. What a blessing. I don’t know what we would’ve done. We all cried when we picked him up. They think a female is in heat and that’s why he took off. Time to invest in an invisible fence since the vet suggested waiting to neuter him till he’s a year old. Whew. Crisis averted thanks to Owyheestar!

Do You Want to Know More?

I registered him with the AKC reunite with the paperwork you sent home with him. The humane society scanned him and my info came up. He wasn’t in their database, but he is now so if it happens again, they will have him.

The AKC reunite is who sent me a notification that he was found and gave me a number to call. The humane society also called me. So I had two different people  helping him get home. Yes!  Please use our story on the blog so it will help others. ~ Natalie

  1. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this important reminder! Reading Trigger’s story brought back a heartbreaking memory. We weren’t as lucky as Trigger and family. Our teen son and his friends didn’t know they let Lucy out the front door. Lucy was our 3 year old 1/2 Dalmatian & 1/2 black Lab. We looked everywhere for her. It was my birthday. We left for dinner and just knew she would find her way home. The next day, there were reports that she was seen on the high school track and in the local supermarket, letting herself in via the automatic doors. At last a report from our local police that she was picked up and taken to the City Shops. Jerry and our older son–so happy–drove to pick her up. What the police didn’t tell them on the phone….she was dead. We were all devasted. Lucy loved to run. Apparently she ran into a busy highway. Her lights went out.
    Her ashes are buried under a Rose bush in our yard called Carefree Delight. That was Lucy. 😢

    • Linda thank you for the share. It is heartbreaking. Sometimes humans fail their best friends. OMG Yes, the microchip is important. I do love using the AKC Reunite microchip. This story shows how fantastic they work and how effective they are for recovery. I am sad Lucy’s story didn’t end well. How very sad and devastating.
