Dog found Salem on his way back to Florida home

SALEM - No one is sure how Cooper, an American bulldog, got to New Hampshire from Florida, but now, he is headed back home.

Cooper was found wandering the streets of Salem a week ago. He was scanned for a microchip at the Salem Animal Rescue League and identified as a missing dog from Florida.

His owner says he went missing in May from their home. She said she thought Cooper had been eaten by a wild animal.

The veterinarian, Kristina Hogg, who treated Cooper at the Salem Animal Rescue League said had he not been for his microchip, there is no way he would be going home.

She said, unfortunately, very few pet owners microchip their pets. She said its inexpensive and the best chance you have to be reunited if your pet gets lost.

Most veterinary offices microchip as well as many animal shelters in the state.
