Tucson: Japanese Beagle and Owner Reunited – Happy Ending
The Beagle’s owner’s is Joseph Stremlau who is now in the National Guard and a student at ASU. While stationed in Okinawa Japan, he adopted Stephen the Beagle at 6 months old from a “Walmart of Beagles” (i.e. puppy-mill like place).
Stremlau went to great lengths to bring Stephen back to the United States.
The dog who escaped from a friend’s yard was found by a good Samaritan near Dodge & Speedway. At one time, Mr. Stremlau he was stationed here, but was transferred to San Diego and couldn’t take Stephen, so his friend took the dog.
Friends and family notified Stremlau about the found Japanese Beagle. Stephen had surgery to remove a pin in his back leg, and is doing great! Stremlau is very excited to be reunited with his Beagle friend. The microchip has been updated to reflect the new address in Phoenix. Happy ending. Here’s the original story.
Tucson Tails loves a happy ending.
Also Sunday, I posted about a dog at PACC that was going to be euthanized on Monday if a special needs adopter or foster care person didn’t come forward. Fortunately, someone did come forward (I don’t know who yet) but thank you! The dog Kavona had been previously adopted from PACC and was neglected and now suffered from Valley Fever. Here’s the original story.
