Chester comes home

After over a week of searching, a lost dog and his Sturgeon Bay owner have finally found each other again. Chester was found early Monday morning on the Bay View Bridge by Abby Heimbecher’s mother on her way to teach classes at the Door County YMCA. Heimbecher’s mom opened the door to her car and Chester jumped in willingly. It was a happy ending to a stressful time for Heimbecher, who had posted signs up around town and went to social media in hopes of help. She says with help from Finding Toby Inc., a Suamico-based missing dog organization, they were able to fine-tune their search efforts.

Heimbecher says there were times when she and her family almost gave up, but she stressed the importance of sticking with it.

As for Chester, he was back home sleeping as of Monday morning after a big welcome home meal. Chester is also preparing for a visit with the vet to make sure he is ok after his week traveling across the city. Heimbecher added that Chester has always been a bit of a runner and says a GPS tracking chip is in his future.
