A dog that was stolen five years ago has miraculously made his way home for the holidays, according to a report by the Daily Mail.
T-Bone, a now 12-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier, was stolen from the driveway of Pat Oates and her family back in 2006 during a powercut. The family feared that T-Bone had been stolen by a local gang to be used as a weapon.
After the pup developed a cyst, however, the gang seemingly lost their need for him and dropped him off. The crafty pooch then made his way onto a local bus, where he was spotted by the driver. After returning to the bus depot, the dog was brought to a veterinarian. He had been micro-chipped, and the scan confirmed that the dog belonged to the Oates family.
Despite having a cyst, the Oates family is committed to providing T-Bone the care he needs and having him home for the holidays.
This story provides yet another example of the benefits of micro-chipping pets, and how microchips can help us find our pets should they wind up lost.
What do you think of this story? Isn't it nice T-Bone made it home for the holiday season? Share your thoughts in a comment!
