Lost Blind Dog Returned to Home

Lost Blind Dog Returned to Home

A San Antonio dog named Stevie Oedipus Wonder disappeared from his family’s home for about a month, so the owners assumed he had been lost and then died.

Stevie Oedipus Wonder had not died though he wound up at San Antonio Animal Care Services, but his dog tag information had not been updated so the owners could not be found. An ad was published to help find him a home, but he was also scheduled for euthanization. A school teacher saw the ad and volunteered to take him in for a short period. The teacher became curious after looking at Stevie’s dog tags and conducted a search on the Craig’s List website using the key words ‘blind dog’.

One of Stevie’s family members had placed on ad on the site describing the lost blind dog and their contact information should anyone find him. The school teacher reached out to them saying she had Stevie and he was reunited with his family.

Animal services or animal shelters are probably a good bet when one is looking for a lost animal. Also, microchipping a pet can help in these situations, because the owner information will remain with the animal and animal shelters typically know to scan them.

Another Christmas animal story with a happy ending resulted from a microchip implant in a cat that wandered about 2,000 miles from home but was found also.
