It turns out her Husky was stolen, and her name had been replaced as the owner on the microchip.
Semper the Husky came into Kameroun Mares’ life at a time when she needed him the most. She was being treated for acute lymphoblastic leukemia and needed the companionship more than ever before.
Shortly after getting chemotherapy, she met the young pup and decided to bring him into her life.
She named him Semper Fidelis — Latin for “always faithful” — and they hit it off right away. But when she had to go to California from Florida for further treatment, something unthinkable happened.
She received a call from her roommate at the time who said Semper had gone missing.
Kameroun tried everything possible to track her Husky down but ended up turning to private investigator Ana Campos for help. It turned out Semper had been stolen by someone, and they replaced Kameroun’s name on the microchip.
The company didn’t check to see whether or not someone was already registered as the owner, so they got away with it. Ana saw that Semper had been put up for sale on Craigslist for $200, and all of this is why Kameroun’s searching had been unsuccessful.
But after two long years, it was finally time to reunite the dog with his rightful owner. And the reunion did not disappoint.
Not only is Semper back with his mom, but Kameroun is now in remission! There couldn’t have been a better ending to this story.
Watch at your own risk of crying immediately. Here is the video and audio from Kameroun Mares reunion with her dog Semper today. 😭💙 and Ana Campos Investigations – South Florida.Please keep in mind Kameroun is just 26 years old. She was 23 when this began. For a young girl to have the wherewithal and courage to hire a private investigator and attorney is remarkable. Shame on Petkey pets for causing her to suffer and spend her savings on fighting for her dog back because of the role they played. He was stolen and sold by her roommate 2 1/2 years ago. She was told he was lost on April 30, 2016. But on April 11, 2016 the buyer added their name to his AKC Reunite "registered chip". They registered this registered chip on Petkey pets instead. Petkey pets did not bother to see if he was chipped already. A lawyer was retained. An ex-parte, pre judgment. writ of replevin and request for a 'break order' was filed. The Judge ruled in her favor and the Sheriff's office seized the dog this morning returning him to the person who always had superior ownership rights. It was a great day.( Ellen DeGeneres ) ( Good Morning America ) ( Live with Kelly and Ryan) ( Today Show ) ( Kathie Lee and Hoda ) ( The View ) ( Fox & Friends ) ( Morning Express with Robin Meade )
