This story grabbed my attention because the dog is originally from Texas (where my dad was raised), but was found in Hamilton, Ohio (where my mom now lives). Weird, huh?
Corbin, a Chiweenie from Killeen, Texas apparently tunneled out of his back yard on March 25th. No one knows what happened between then and when the dog was found tied to a bench outside the Butler County Animal Friends Humane Society in Hamilton, Ohio on March 28th, but what happened next is truly a tale of fate and Good Samaritanism.
Shelter workers took the dog inside and scanned, and yes, found a microchip that put them in touch with Corbin’s owners, Mike and Sharlette Saiz.
Now, the question becomes: how do you get a dog from Ohio to Texas when you don’t have lots of money?
The Saiz family turned to social media and found a woman who was in Springfield, Ohio for a funeral, and would soon be returning to Texas. Mary Davis said she’d be happy to bring the dog home if someone could drive Corbin from Hamilton to Springfield.
Turns out a friend of a friend of the Saiz family lives in Springfield and said they would go to Hamilton to pick up the tiny dog. Corbin arrived home late in the evening of April 3rd, after quite a trip!
The Butler County Sheriff’s office is still trying to find out who dropped the dog at the shelter. Anyone with information is asked to please contact Kurt Merbs of the Dog Warden Division at 513-785-6542.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
