HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -
By Jade Storms
The Chihuahua that caused quite a traffic jam on H-1 Eastbound Thursday morning has finally been reunited with his owner.
After a difficult 20-minute chase with police, the chihuahua-mix was caught and brought to the Hawaii Humane Society. The dog did not have a micro-chip or any identification on his collar at the time.
A friend of the owner recognized the dog after seeing it on the news and immediately contacted the owner, resulting in a heart warming reunion.
While the chihuahua-mix suffered no injuries, the owner's other dog that was also loose on the freeway was fatally hit by a car. The owner wishes to remain anonymous, and while grieving for the loss of the one dog, he is overjoyed to be reunited with his furry friend.
Hawaii Humane Society Community relations director Jackie Leblanc strongly encourages all pet owners to micro-chip their animals so if their pet is lost, it's much easier to contact them.
"Micro-chipping is the easiest thing in the world," Leblanc said. "It's a painless process and is done by an injection in between the shoulder blades. The micro-chip is tiny, about the size of a grain of rice and the whole process takes about three minutes."
Leblanc also added that a pet's micro-chip is only as good as the information it's connected to, so if the information isn't current, the process is unsuccessful.
Upon it's safe return, the owner immediately had a micro-chip injected into the dog following their reunion.
Hawaii Humane Society offers microchipping for dogs and cats seven days a week from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. for only $15.
