Twitter Helps Reunite Connecticut Dog With Owner

Twitter Dog

Thanks to the power of Twitter, a dog and his owner are now reunited.

Two days after finding and taking in the stray dog she found wandering around Darien, Connecticut, Kristin Calve decided to take to Twitter in hopes of finding the dog’s owner.

Calve had contacted animal control officials about a small, Yorkshire Terrier named Bori that had no tags and no microchip. But Bori’s owner hadn’t come forward as of Sunday night and Calve began to worry.

“I started to think `do I own this dog now,” she said. That’s when Calve posted a photo of the dog on her Twitter page, along with a plea for help.

The tweet, it turned out, paid off. Calve said the neighbor of Bori’s owner, who lives in Stamford, Connecticut saw the story, which had been posted online by the Darien Connecticut News and The Advocate, and called Calve’s cell phone number to claim the dog.

On Monday morning, Calve tweeted the good news. “Thanks to @StamAdvocate! Your story helped us find the dog’s owners! I just dropped him off.”
