Endo the Mastiff reunited with owner - Endo traveled 1,500 miles from home....


A dog named Endo, currently residing at the Animal Allies Humane Society shelter in Superior, MN, is a jowly, drooling mastiff. “If you’ve seen Turner and Hooch, he’s just like that dog,” owner Denise Hartzog said.
And he’s big: 115 pounds. But thanks to a very tiny piece of technology, he’ll soon be returning to the Hartzogs in Cape Coral, Fla., after being away for a year and a half.
A microchip embedded in Endo’s shoulder told shelter workers in Superior that the big, friendly dog had a home — 1,500 miles away.
“Microchipping is so important,” said Betsy Bode, the Superior shelter manager. “This is a perfect example.”
It seems remarkable for a dog to have worked its way from Florida to Northwestern Wisconsin. But Hartzog said she doesn’t consider it very surprising.
“Everyone comes south for the winter,” she said. And people who come south sooner or later head back north, perhaps with a dog in tow.
But for more than a year, Denise and Tommy Hartzog thought Endo had made it only as far as the canal across the street.
“A lot of people lose their dogs to gators in the canals here,” Denise Hartzog said in a telephone interview on Saturday afternoon.
