This December, as part of National Pet ID Month, we will feature some reunion stories we hope will encourage you to use this month to get on top of your pet’s identification.
One of our favourite things at The Lost Dogs’ Home is reuniting lost pets with their owners. There is nothing better than scanning a dog or cat for a microchip, finding up-to-date details and making contact with a very relieved, excited and sometimes even tearful owner.
However, every now and then, our staff receive a different sort of reaction — silence, disbelief and questions like, “Are you sure?”

North Melbourne: Brandi is a sweet 5 year old Border Collie cross who has come from the country so she can be a little shy at times.

Three month old Murphy is a super cute Heeler cross with plenty of energy to burn. He’s a working dog so will need plenty of exercise and mental stimulation to avoid him getting bored and destructive.

All too often there is a misconception that shelter cats and dogs are damaged, that they have bad habits and can never be trained. Luckily this misconception is starting to recede with time with more adopters now proudly testifying that their shelter animal is far from being damaged — in fact, some of them even go on to win medals!!
One such prodigy is boisterous Kelpie Labrador mix Barney, whose team recently took out first prize in his division in Flyball!
