Here’s the story of how a microchip saved a dog named Sage: The 10-year-old, three-legged German Shepherd named Sage—a predominantly outdoor dog—went missing early last summer from her owner’s property near Spokane, Wash. After being gone for three months, Sage was presumed dead, due to her age and poor physical condition. But then Sage’s owner received good news from a veterinarian in a town 30 miles away: Sage had been found and brought in for an exam. The veterinarian scanned her for a microchip (which she had) and checked a database for the owner’s contact information. If it hadn’t have been for this tiny piece of technology, the happy reunion between Sage and her owner very likely wouldn’t have happened.
