Dog Reunited with Family after Story on Kent Patch

The black lab had been missing since Oct. 1

A black lab that had been missing since Oct. 1 was reunited with its family Monday thanks to a story on Kent Patch .

Compliance Officer Dana Frazier said the dog was found running loose in the area of Fairchild Avenue and Silver Meadows earlier this month and, as a result, was put in the city's kennel.

The dog, a male, had been kept long enough at the kennel without being claimed that he was put up for adoption.

That's when Kent Patch wrote a story about the dog being put up for adoption. Fortunately, the story alerted the owner to the dog's whereabouts.

Frazier said the owner saw the dog on Kent Patch and came in to claim it Monday — the same day the story ran.

"They were delighted, just overjoyed at getting their dog back," Frazier said.

dear god - if their beloved dog was missing why didnt these people contact the warden and local pounds daily in the first place?? didnt they place an add in the Kent Patch or local papers??? didnt they put posters up either?????? i have my pooch micro chipped and have my cell phone # on her collar too. chip costs only $27.00 and doest come off like a collar can. I find strays all the time. if there is a phone number i call and get the dog back home. did they just hope the dog would wonder back home by its self???

I told all my neighbors and they let others know in the area! Don't be so hard on this family!!! Maybe they didn't know that the city has a kennel or where to turn.
