Dog separated from family during Reno hike back home safe
RENO, Nev. (News 4 & Fox 11) —
A dog who got separated from his family while on a hike in Reno has been reunited with his family.
According to Washoe County, Zephyr was separated from his family while on a hike at Thomas Creek in October during a visit to Reno. Twenty-three days later, a hiker found Zephyr and was able to return the 13-year-old dog back to his owners thanks to a microchip.
Washoe County officials want to remind people to microchip their animals for free at Washoe County Regional Animal Services.
