He came to the shelter in November of last year. A full year after the hurricane.

Unless this story is exactly one year old.

Perhaps neither of you read all of the article? The dog has been missing since Hurricane Sandy. It only showed up at the local shelter this past November.

Or have I just been hooked by somebody trolling?

I didn't read the article, to be honest. I misunderstood it as they looked for a year, gave up and went to the shelter to get a new one.

Well, that's pretty much what happened. Though the article did not state whether or not they looked at the shelter early on in their search; they would not have found it there anyway. It wasn't there.

I won't assume that they did look there either. Not everybody has a modicum of reasoning skill. So in the end, I guess your premise as is reasonable as mine.

So the article states the dog was only just admitted (term?) to the shelter in November? Wonder where he was

I didn't say he wasn't. It's just weird he wouldn't turn up, but stayed in the area, unless he was living with some other family.

There are lots of strange stories with lost pets.

We had an orange striped tabby named Rufus. He was an indoor/outdoor cat mainly because we couldn't figure out how he kept getting outside despite locking all the doors and windows.

We knew that he had a tendency to wander a bit (he was young, too young yet to be fixed, and we didn't chip him...that was *her* job since she brought him home...anyway...) and then one day he just disappeared. We thought the worst, but regularly checked the shelters. Two months later, he turned up. We heard that he was found poking around some flower beds at a senior center. TEN MILES AWAY.

No way our neighborhood signs would have helped find him.

Moral of the story: lost pets turn up in the oddest places at the oddest times all the time. Keep looking for them.

The look on that dog's face reminds me of the very last scene in Empire Of The Sun, where the kid finds his mother after 5 years of being displaced in camps.

I knew someone who had her dog chipped, licensed, and wore tags. Her dog went missing and she went around to all the shelters, and no luck. On a hunch, she tried the very first shelter again and her dog was visible from the lobby, wearing its tags! The dog was there the first time she went there, and it was scheduled to be killed the next day. She had to fight the clerk to get her dog back, because for whatever stupid reason, they kept saying it wasn't hers.

"Your family dog is lost during Hurricane Sandy. After searching and giving up hope, 1.5 years later you decide to adopt a dog."

"Lucas came to the Monmouth County SPCA in November and had been waiting for his forever family. Volunteers have even said he seemed like he was looking for someone. Now we know Lucas (who's real name is Reckless) was searching for his family!"

RIF, Reading [the farking article] Is Fundamental.

Assuming they didn't go to any shelter is As[s]inine.

But don't let that get in the way of your Internet Outrage.

Every time there is a disaster like this, shelters and organizations nationwide get there and scoop up animals and relocate them to locations where there are still shelters and organizations standing, not wiped out by the disaster.

Even if you wanted to only hang your poutrage on the fact that Rechless wasn't "chipped" for identification, it might have been months before the family even had a valid address, much less the same address that was destroyed during hurricane Sandy.

While I don't wish you ever experience a disaster like Sandy, karma would be served if you are derided by Internet Outrage and your loss is mocked on FARK

You take things too seriously, and should probably have a smoke or something.

Judging by the dozen or so people who've also commented on your craptastic post, you "should probably have a smoke or something" more than I [or the others]. It might have saved you from making that craptastic mistake in the first place.

I had a friend whose dog would regularly dig under the fence and go missing for days at a time and then show back up. He never looked worse for wear - not starving certainly. Each time they'd walk the neighborhood, stick up signs, etc. Finally after about a year of this, they got a knock on the door, some guy with their dog. It turns out the dog had another family across town. He'd spend half the week with them and then go see his second family.

They worked it out that they'd share "custody."

The chipped info could have been old/outdated and they had not had time to get new ones.
