Rocco escaped under a fence from his home in Queens, NY 5yrs. ago, only to turn up earlier this month in Liberty Co., Georgia. Animal Control officers scanned the beagle, found his microchip, and contacted the Villacis Family. No one is sure how Rocco got to Georgia, but he is in good health, so it seems someone has been taking care of him.
Microchips can mean the difference in getting a lost pet home and this story shows how important it is to keep you contact information up to date.
