This is a very touching story and such a lucky dog. My Cj got out of the fence multiple times and despite everything we tried, he still managed to escape. People always brought him back to us due to our address on his collar but one day he was not so lucky. He was hit by a car right in front of our house and the person that hit him just kept going. This world can be so cruel at times. This is why I keep my new Izzy inside with me always. When it is potty time she is on a leash. Never again will I allow a dog of mine outside unattended.

Knowing how beagles are,it doesn't surprise me to find out how far Bella had wandered. Kudos to the niece for making sure that she got scanned and had a chance to be reunited with her owner.

one of the first things my vet does is scan for a chip when i bring in a new stray. this article makes me wonder if that's common practice.

I agree that microchips are very important; my dogs both have them.

I am so happy that Bella found her way home. What an amazing story. After helping so many, it is only right that she have her dog returned to her.

You have to always remember when owning a beagle that they all love to dig. You need to also break them of the habbit or give them a safe area where they are aloud to dig. We use to have a dalmation named holly and she dug gaint holes in the backyard and every time we went out there we would step in the holes and trip over them. Then there was a dog that showed up at our house just a friendly big old female mutt but we thought about keeping her if the owners did not ever claim her but a couple hours later we were sitting out front with her and to guys walked up she got all excited and jumped up on them and licked them they said she was their dog so we had them prove it and then returned her to them.
