Dora the German Shepherd was missing for 7 months
 
I saw this online today and thought I would share:

Dora the German Shepherd was missing for 7 months, but thanks to a microchip that was implanted under her skin, she was finally reunited with her family at Collin County Animals Services in Mckinney, TX. Her reaction is nothing short of amazing, and it brought tears to my eyes!

Dora's body language didn't look very happy she was reunited. She looks like she'd run again if she got the chance.

Yeah she doesn't. Do dogs remember their owners after 7 months? I'd think my dog would go crazy to see me but i'd be even crazier.
Not sure if he'd remember me that long though.

Another question. I heard that if a dog gets lost and winds up in the shelter they have to be fixed before going back to their owners. Is that true?

I wrote 'pls no shelter' on his tags mainly because I don't want him to get stressed going to the shelter but also because I don't want him neutered. Or given any shots. Anything. And I'm afraid shelters have their protocols. I'm hoping I get lucky and the people that find him will call one of the 3 phone numbers on his tags

Having said that, I'm hoping he never runs away. But I can drop dead while walking him.

Of course he would remember you. He'd remember your scent first before even seeing your face...

I don't think she shows body signs typical of being beaten, persay. I say she's a very nervous dog and is showing typical appeasement signals, which I tend to see in very nervous dogs in breeds like border collies and aussies. But the fact that she's curling in to him and placing her paw on him, I don't see this at all as fear of him.

Depends on the shelter....most make you pay up front for a spay/neuter when adopting. Dogs that are reclaimed are usually never s/n'd during the hold time.
But I know a few shelters that will order it if the dog is picked up more than 2x's. And the reclaim fee's are higher, or fines given. That is one reason many in my county don't reclaim, they don't want to pay for getting their dogs out of jail, so just leave them there :(

Wow, I thought she was gonna to snap at him. That body language was very intense! Definitely not a happy homecoming.

How much is the fee?
I\'d borrow if I didn\'t have enough. Leaving him in the shelter is not an option. Payment plans. Something. Is if over 1k?

I\'ve seen this one before and while she does look terrified you never really know what has happened to her in her 7 months on the streets. I wouldn\'t automatically assume she was scared of her owner.
