Dogs Trust - the UK's largest dog welfare charity - is thrilled to hear of yet another lost dog reunited with his family, all thanks to his microchip.

The charity, which campaigned tirelessly for microchipping to become compulsory, welcomed the new legislation in April 2016 which made it a legal requirement for all dogs to be microchipped, and for their owner's contact details to be kept up to date. 

Dogs Trust is so pleased that Tom was able to be reunited with his family, and hopes it will act as a reminder to all dog owners that without a microchip, their dog could be lost forever.
