Nell, a six year old Border Collie x Kelpie, almost did not make it past 9 months old when her previous owner gave her up. According to the shelter’s policy, dogs without microchip will be automatically euthanised after a week in the shelter.
Nell was not microchipped. So you can imagine her story could have ended way too early. Somehow DOG (spelled backward) had a different plan for her. Not having microchip turned out to be a blessing for her. This led to a completely different outcome to Nell’s story, a story with an important message I had to share.
