Rodney James, a resident of Wynnum, a coastal suburb in Brisbane, was ecstatic when he brought home his new best friend. He was a little English Staffordshire pup who Rodney named Zeus.
The two quickly became inseparable, and the dog was like a shadow to his owner. Everywhere Rodney went, Zeus was by his side.
According to the proud and happy dad, the pup was his release to the world. He made him happy and took him to a place where he had no worries.
But then, when Zeus was four months old, he went missing. The pup was able to escape his parked car and ran away.
Rodney was utterly devastated. he was quite worried that something bad might happen to his precious pet. He searched far and wide, but the puppy was nowhere to be found.
Even when the years passed, he never lost hope that he would see his beloved pooch once again.
Found and lost again
Seven years later, Rodney received the call he had long hoped to get. A representative from a microchip company told him that Zeus was found.
Rodney went into complete shock. He was overjoyed that Zeus was found. He could already see the reunion that they were going to have. But then, the representative said something that he couldn’t believe.
They asked Rodney if he would be willing to change the registered owner in the microchip. Straight off the bat, he refused. He wanted his dog back.
As it turned out, a couple found Zeus and raised him. But when the man died, the wife surrendered the dog to a rescue organization. The dog stayed there for a while, but he was then adopted by another family. When they brought him to a vet, they discovered that the registration on Zeus’ microchip was wrong.
Apparently, the rescue organization had a clerical error and the right registration number was not recorded. When the vet found the right number, they reported the dog to the microchip company. They then got in touch with Rodney.
When the new owners were informed that Rodney wanted his dog back, they refused.
Rodney was once again devastated. The matter was brought to the court and both parties are now awaiting the decision.
