Similar to the move Homeward Bound, a dog lost for two years will finally be reunited with her owner. On February 26th, Omaha Nebraska Humane Society’s animal control picked up a stray lab-pit bull in the north central part of the city. The dog had a number of puncture wounds on her head and neck that were likely bites from other animals. The dog needed medical attention so was taken to the shelter where the veterinarians stitched up her wounds and gave her much needed rest.
At the Nebraska Humane Society, she was scanned for a microchip that traced an owner to New Mexico. The 10 year old dog, named Tantrum, had been missing for two years.
The dog’s owner couldn’t believe his dog made it from New Mexico to Nebraska and immediately started the search for plane flights to get the dog home. Tantrum is finally well enough and was given the okay to fly. She will board a plane tomorrow and will fly home in the afternoon. Tantrum’s owner couldn’t make the trip to Omaha to get her but will be meeting her at the El Paso, Texas airport, the closest to their home.
The Nebraska Humane Society stresses this is another reason to have your pet micro chipped as it can be a key in getting your animal back home.
