Microchip reunites woman with dog
A Severn woman was reunited with her dog after Animal Control officers discovered a couple being evicted from their home had been keeping him, Anne Arundel County police said.
An Animal Control officer was called to the home on the 8200 block of Sebring Court in Severn on Tuesday to take two miniature pinchers into custody while the tenants were evicted.
The officer found a microchip in the male dog, which showed it was registered to another Severn woman.
The tenants showed up at Animal Control headquarters in Millersville that day to pick up the two dogs, but were told that they didn't own the male dog, named Tyson.
