A 10-year-old blind dog has been reunited with his family thanks to a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department Animal Care and Control officer. The dog, named Juice, disappeared more than two years ago, but thanks to the microchip that his family got for him, officer Kathleen Caffray was able to make an unlikely reunion possible.
Officer Caffray told Your Basin News about her visit to Juice's family:
"When I asked if they had a dog missing, they said, ‘No, we don’t have a dog,’ and I was like, ‘You don’t own Juice?’ And they’re like, ‘Oh my gosh! Juice?! Juice has been missing for two years!’”
Juice was picked up as a stray just three miles away from his family's home - so close that Officer Caffray was able to go in person to let them know that their dog has been found. Where Juice has been for all of this time remains a mystery.
A wonderful reminder of the importance of microchips AND keeping the information up to date. Sometimes miracles really dog happen.
