Owner and Dog Reunited After 5 YearsPublished June 27, 2011
Craig Kline had not seen his black poodle, Baxter, since his life threatening car accident in 2005. Baxter escaped the car and ran away. Kline was left with a broken neck but survived.
Kline had given up hope looking for Baxter once he healed, but in early May, 66 months after the accident, he received a remarkable phone call.
Someone had found Baxter and brought him to the Central Brevard Humane Society animal shelter, which contacted Kline. They were able to identify Baxter because of a small microchip he had imbedded in him. The process of injecting a microchip is easy, painless and has life changing results. For only $25, you can have one imbedded in your pet that is the size of a grain of rice and provides access to owners' names, addresses and phone numbers.
When the pair were reunited, Baxter was said to have recognized Kline right away and seemed extremely delighted to see him. It is amazing how this inexpensive insurance can help you get your irreplaceable pet back!
