EUGENE, Ore. — Local animal shelter workers are trying to figure out how a dog from Japan ended up in Eugene.
Greenhill Humane Society’s First Avenue Animal Shelter relies on microchips to figure out where lost dogs come from. This week it came across a Korean Jindo dog that was brought in as a stray. The dog’s microchip says it’s from Japan.
“Our best guess is that he was bred and somehow transferred over to the United States and somehow has lost his owner,” said Sasha Elliott, Greenhill Humane Society spokesperson.
The dog, now named Tokyo, is still looking for a home.
