Missing For 11 Months, This Pug Traveled 650 Miles Through Three States Before Being Reunited With OwnersAshley Maisano
Chips the pug is finally on his way home, but his journey has been anything but easy.
After going missing last November from his home in San Antonio, Texas, four-year-old Chips walked 650 miles to Petal, Mississippi before being rescued. Luckily, he was found in a store parking lot by a humane citizen who brought him to a nearby animal hospital. They discovered his implanted microchip and immediately contacted his owners. The ecstatic owners drove from Texas to Mississippi to pick up their fur-baby.
Of course we are unsure of how Chips got all the way to Petal from San Antonio, but fortunately he was found in good health. I’m so relieved that Chips was safely reunited with his owners. This is a great example of why it’s a good idea to always micro-chip your pets!! Without the micro-chip, Chips most likely never would have seen his family again.
