It’s yet another moment of swelling emotion as a Michigan family meets again with their dog that was missing for four years, later found in Ohio. After four good years, The Michigan gave up on ever seeing their dog again. But, a surprise sprang up when the family got a call informing them that their missing dog has been found. The call came from a microchip company. According to the company,
the dog was found in Toledo — tons of miles away. According to the family member, Bradley, who received the call, “I was really stunned at the news!” How Did it Happen?
The report had it that the dog, Bambi was found by a Toledo police officer. The pup wandered in a city neighborhood. The police who found Bambi carried the dog to Lucas County Canine Care & Control. There, an employee found that the dog had an owner by scanning her microchip. According to the community outreach coordinator in charge of the shelter, “the dog lost a lot of weight but was quite adorable. No one can tell where it has been or how she was able to get to this far place.” About one week ago, the pup was reunited with the owners – a Wieferich
family. According to Bradley Wieferich, “As I took a walk around cages in the shelter, I didn’t recognize the pup. But then, I quickly saw the markings on Bambi’s muzzle, then came the familiar howl from her. The pup longed to be back home”. Bambi became an adopted part of the family at 7 months or thereabout. Then, when the golden retriever belonging to the family became sick of cancer and died, Bambi probably felt lonely and started wandering away. “Taking pity on her, I got another dog to keep her company”, Bradley said. “But, she still escaped six
months later. We searched and searched but couldn’t find her. We gave up and concluded she must have found another foster home.”
