Thread: Dog Found in Irving Texas Area

  1. #1

    Default Dog Found in Irving Texas Area

    Just got off the phone with Bill Watson. He was contacted by VitalPet Animal Hospital on Story Road in Irving Texas. Someone found a Chocolate lab that apparently came from Gator Point Kennels because it has a microchip from them. If anyone is missing their pup, please call the clinic at 972-790-3585.

    Should be tattooed with code to I.D. this particular dog. Cleo introduced me to the "system" that they used and I have used it since on my litters. Great way to quickly I.D an individual dog if you don't happen to have a chip scanner handy.

    The clinic scanned the dog and it has a microchip from Gator Point Kennels. That is why they contacted Bill. Apparently, who ever purchased the dog from Gator Point did not change the chip registration for the dog so they do not know who the owner is. Bill no longer has the chip listing to be able to identify the owners. I am trying to spread the word that the dog has been found but with no way to identify the current owners.

    This happens far too often. I hope they find the owner soon.

    Thanks Janet for posting this. BE IT A LESSON TO EVERYONE WHO BUYS A DOG THAT IS ALREADY CHIPPER! REREGISTER THE DOG WITH YOUR OWN INFORMATION. When Cleo died, this was just one thing of many that I always depended on her to do.She has it all written down somewhere. This, along with many others I am going to have to find out where, but she has a mountain of information filed away some where, may take some time, we never threw away anything.
