Owner Says Rottweiler Puppy Stolen From Backyard

Posted: Updated:

A Fargo woman is happy and relieved to have her puppy back after she says it was stolen from her backyard over the weekend. While the story comes with a happy ending, it also comes with a valuable lesson.

Sara Kingrey of Fargo says, "He's such a sweetheart."

It's a face that can melt your heart...

"We absolutely love him," says Kingrey

And make you want to snatch him up... Which is exactly what happened.

"Usually he's the first one at the door and he didn't come," says  Kingrey.

Her roommates had let her Rottweiler puppy, Mason, and their other dogs out on Saturday night.

"There were footprints leading, you couldn't tell where they were from, but this was bent over," says Kingrey.

There were no breaks in the fence, so she knew her dog had been taken. One thing she could have done is mircochipped him.

Dr. Alicia Wisnewski with Prairie Winds Veterinary Center says, "The microchip gives us a permanent way to identify the pet and who they belong to."

Chips are about the size of the diameter of a pencil lead, and even though it won't help you track your lost pet, it can point you in the right direction.

Dr. Wisnewski says, "They send out an alert to all the veterinarian clinics and all the shelters in the area and it puts us on high alert."

She adds it's an easy procedure, but many people wait to chip their pets until they are spayed or neutered, which was exactly the case for Mason. But his story comes with a happy ending.

"They called us late last night an had found him," says Kingrey.

After a day of searching, phone calls and fliers, Kingrey got her baby back safe and sound.

"Teared up a little bit. We're really happen to see him again," says Kingrey

Microchips at Prairie Winds Veterinarian Center run you about $40 and can vary from location to location.
