Reunion Story - Oso the Yorkie

On a typical Tuesday morning, Luis opened the door to his backyard to let Oso, a one year old Yorkshire Terrier, out to go to the bathroom.  After a little while, his kids could not find the dog. 

Luis came home from work to help his kids search the neighborhood and put up lost dog posters, all to no avail. 

Last week, he visited the Chula Vista Animal Care Facility, but could not find the dog.  His search also came up empty at the San Diego County Animal Services facility in Bonita. 

On Monday, a friend told him that he should register Oso with Finding Rover.  At first, Luis was reluctant to do so. After uploading a photo of Oso, he was quickly notified that Oso was safe at the animal care facility on Gaines Street

Luis stated that he was “stunned” when he saw Oso’s photo on Finding Rover. He and his children (ages 5, 7, and 15) are ecstatic knowing that Oso had been found.
