Default Found Chihuahua from Massapequa NY

Hello. I was just on a walk with my Golden Retriever in my neighborhood, and a lost Chihuahua followed us home. I live in Manassas Virginia, but the dog is from Massapequa NY! This is on Long Island. I've tried calling the number and no answer. He has a rabies tag also, from a Love my Pet vaccine clinic in Massapequa NY. He might be mixed with a little Jack Russell Terrier, but is mostly Chihuahua. He is white and brown. His name is Spikey. What I'd like to know is how he got here in VA from Long Island New York. I am concerned that he might be abandoned. He looks to be about 10 years old. His Rabies Tag is so worn, I cannot read it all. It is from 2011. This dog has been owned for a long while. If he did happen to hop a train down here, which I don't think is likely, then he might have owners looking for him. Maybe the owner just moved here, and his dog ran off. Is anybody from Long Island looking for a Chihuahua? Did someone on here who lost a Chihuahua just move to Manassas Virginia from Massapequa, NY? If there is anybody who could me locate the owner like on FaceBook or something, let me know.

Any help would be appreciated. Thankfully, my niece and nephew are here looking after him and doting on him, while I try to figure this out.

I will now go down and take his picture.

Can you post a photo?

Have you taken him by a vet clinic to see if he is micro chipped?

could be that someone from NY went to visit someone from VA since it's not too far of a drive from here. have u tried sharing it on fb? there's a fb page just for lost and found dogs from long island https://www.facebook.com/Lostandfound.petslongisland
i share from here all the time and lots of dogs get reunited too

Default Got a hold of the owner!

Update! I decided to try the phone number one more time, and the owner answered. She lives in New York, but she had her aunt in Manassas VA watching him. Her aunt went out of town and left Spikey with a neighbor. Another relative is coming this morning at 11:00 to pick him up.

This post was delayed because I am new to this forum, but I am not new to dog forums altogether. I am a seasoned member on the Golden Retriever forum board, since I own a Golden Retriever.

I am so glad that this story will have a happy ending.
