German Shepherd Travels From Maine To North Carolina To Reunite With Family

Source: Coastal Humane Society Facebook Page

Nine-year-old German shepherd, Chisum, has finished a six-month journey that led him from Florida to Maine and then reunited with his family in North Carolina.Chisum, had been surrendered by his owners in April to the Flagler Humane Society in Florida. His owners Kathy and Nelson Walden were relocating to North Carolina.

They had raised the dog since he was a puppy, the RV park they moved to in North Carolina would not accept such a large dog.

They decided to leave Chisum in Florida, in part, due to the warmer weather might ease his arthritis.They worked with the Flagler Humane Society to find him a new home.

Chisum was adopted by a man in Maine over the summer, but his new owners health declined and had to surrender the dog. That’s when Chisum ended up at the Coastal Humane Society in Brunswick.

The Coastal Humane Society discovered a microchip on the dog that showed he had been at the Florida shelter. They then found a note in Chisum’s file with the original owners phone number and called the family.

The Walden’s had since bought a new home and were thrilled to welcome back Chisum!

Humane Society volunteer Kristin Comee offered to drive the dog to Virginia and return him to the Waldens.
