A dog that went missing a couple of months ago has reunited with its family, although not without some near-tragic experiences.

Last night, Pinole police located a friendly dog wandering streets near downtown that was nearly struck by multiple vehicles. Officers contained the dog, which lacked a collar or tags, until Animal Control was notified. Thankfully, the dog was chipped and could therefore be identified, police said.

“It was learned the dog had been missing for a couple of months, and the family was thrilled to get him back,” police said.

Pinole police said the incident shows the importance of having some form of identifiation on your pet.
