Microchipped dog, lost nearly 2 years, reuniting with original San Bernardino owner after all
By David Downey
Zeus is coming home.
The San Bernardino man who lost the beloved dog nearly two years ago was preparing to reunite with the blue-eyed husky Thursday morning, Feb. 8, at an animal shelter in Wildomar.
David Guindon, 52, who bought the dog as a puppy several years ago after he suffered a stroke, said this morning he was on his way to the shelter run by the Lake Elsinore-Wildomar area Animal Friends of the Valleys. Guindon had said he hadn’t seen Zeus since May 2016.
Thanks to his foresight to microchip the dog, Guindon was alerted to Zeus’ new location recently. But he heard that the Lake Elsinore family that had the dog wanted to keep it. Then he learned Wednesday night that the dog had been turned in to the shelter.
A jubilant Guindon emailed The Southern California News Group on Wednesday night: “ZEUS IS IN CUSTODY TONIGHT IN LAKE ELSINORE.”
