Baller Reunited with Arturo

When Baller went missing in March 2016, Arturo searched everywhere. He put up posters, talked to neighbors, and posted on websites and groups. He had almost given up hope when his family moved. Thanks to pet licensing and microchipping, Baller the pittie was reunited with Arturo on July 5 after being lost for sixteen months. We live for these sweet reunions. Congratulations Baller and Arturo
