On the morning of April 23rd, Ron Westphal Chevrolet General Manager, Bill Houlis, was driving to work like usual. Suddenly, he spotted a puppy jetting out from the field into the road directly in front of the new Chevrolet Tahoe he was driving. Bill got out of his vehicle and looked around, hoping to see the dog’s owner chasing after him. No such luck. No one was around and the little pup was begging for Bill’s attention, so what could he do? He scooped up the little guy and plopped him into the passenger seat of the Tahoe and took him to work.
Everyone at Ron Westphal Chevrolet was immediately charmed by this friendly, squiggly puppy. Erin Bonifas, our license and title clerk called her sister in law who brought over dog food and a lease. We are all dog lovers in the Ron Westphal Chevrolet office so we already had dog bowls, treats and toys on hand for the doggie visitors our clients bring in. These canine accessories came in especially handy today.
When our IT gal came in she immediately posted the little pupper’s pic all over the Internet. The little guy received tons of shares and comments but no one has claimed him as of yet.
Bill Houlis and our Internet Manager, Mike Kalsto, took the dog across the street to the Oswego Veterinary clinic to see if he was microchipped and to have his overall health accessed. As it turns out, this puppy was chipped, but not registered. We’ll do our best to track down the owners but, in the unlikely event the original owners aren’t found…I can assure you we’ll find a wonderful home for ‘Sam’, our temporary official mascot at Ron Westphal Chevrolet.
UPDATE: RENUNITED WITH OWNERS!
As it turns out this little pup was chipped but not registered to an owner. But, Bill Houlis was able to track down the chip to a facility in Florida that had received 2 dogs from the Cayman Islands. Working with the Cayman Islands and the Florida facility we were able to track down the owner. So this sweet puppy who’s real name is Cayman, and he’s back with his sister pup and a family of 4 kids in a safe, fenced-in back yard.
