County looking for dog with ties to military

Press Release

The County Department of Animal Services is seeking the owner of a lost dog whose microchip has been traced to Saudi Arabia.

The dog, a neutered male Saluki, is approximately 5 to 6 years old and was found in the Valley Center area.

County Animal Services contacted the microchip manufacturer and it does not have a record of the microchip being registered to an individual. The manufacturer confirmed that the microchip was sold to the United States Military Training Mission, which is headquartered in Saudi Arabia.

Unfortunately, tracing this microchip through military sources has not yet been successful.

“We are hoping the owner will hear about this and come forward to claim their pet,” said Laurie Joniaux, deputy director of animal services. “Often times, when unregistered, we hit a dead end. In those cases, if no owner comes forward, the animal can be adopted out to a new home.”

To claim the dog, the owner will need to bring in proof of ownership, such as vaccination certificate, import documents, and/or photos of themselves with the dog.
