When a man found a black Lab mix on his front porch in Lower Burrell, Pennsylvania, he brought her to Animal Protectors of Allegheny Valley, hopeful they would be able to find her owners. And because the dog was microchipped, they finally found her owner, but it took a few tries.
When they reached Debra Suierveld to tell her that her dog Abby had been located, she was shocked. She explained to the shelter that Abby had been missing for 10 years after disappearing one day while she was outside playing with her kids. But thanks to the microchip, this long lost pup is back with her owner once again. Abby is in very good health for her age, so shelter workers think someone must have been taking care of her. According to shelter manager Gwen Snyder, "Abby's reunion likely never would have happened if she'd not been microchipped." Everyone couldn't be happier!
