Joey and Ana reunited

K9 animal news

HANDSOME Joey went missing, possibly stolen, a year ago from his home in La Caleta, Costa Adeje.

His family were distraught, and searched everywhere for him with no luck.  A few months later, they had to return to Holland, and, with their beloved Joey still missing, they feared the worst.

However, two months ago, a lady found a lost dog in a local town. She took him to the vet to check for a chip. He had one, and it was Joey! The vet rang the Dutch contact number, and Joey’s mum could not believe the news that her boy had been found. She immediately started to make arrangements to bring him home.

Joey came to stay at K9 while his mum, Ana, sorted out flights, and, recently, the two were reunited. They are now at home in Holland and, without doubt, it’s happy ever after for this special guy. This is a great reminder of just how important it is to microchip your pet, and to keep your contact details up to date.
