Stolen Dora safely back home but vet failed to detect her microchip! #FernsLaw

We have just received some amazing news!! Dora was missing from her home in Trowbridge and we and her owners were facing the possibility she may have passed away due to her being elderly and on heart medication which she needed daily, turns out she was grabbed by opportunists passing by and ended up in Gloucestershire and hoarded with a load of other stolen dogs!!

The police did a raid after a tip off and found Dora barely alive and raced her to the vets, her microchip unfortunately wasn’t detected and after the vets got her well again a lovely officer planned to keep her but then stumbled across one of the many posts shared of the article of Dora in the Wiltshire times!

So Dora is now back home where she belongs!! We’ve all been in tears of joy at this wonderful news! Goes to show your much loved pets can end up absolutely anywhere!

Never give up hope. ❤️ and most importantly keep them safe ❤️

Debbie Matthews from Vets Get Scanning said, “This is why it’s so important for vets to scan and check microchips. Dora was rescued in a police raid, a microchip check should have been a priority in this situation! Dora is very lucky to be home! Special thanks go to that officer who went the extra mile to get her home!
