A man who thought his puppy had been lost forever has been reunited with her a year after she was stolen from his home in Devon.
Zulu, a female brindle lurcher was just 15 weeks old when thieves broke down a fence and stole her from her owner Danny Allan's garden.
She was found at Swanmore College in Hampshire on October 13th 2015 and taken to a vet who called Winchester City Council's Animal Welfare Service that same day.
“Zulu was microchipped, but was registered to a Devon address. I left a message on the telephone number given to say that we had found the dog.
Some people pass dogs on and forget to update the microchip database so, as it was so far away, I wasn’t optimistic that we would locate the owner. “
However, Danny Allan, who now lives in Wiltshire called the next day and collected her. Senior Animal Welfare Officer Dave Griffiths said the reunion was a wonderful outcome, and showed the value of microchipping pets as a deterrent to thieves.
From April 2016 all dogs will need to microchipped by law. Details on the microchip database also need to be updated.
