|The Orvis Personalized Dog Collar to the Rescue: A True Story
A little boy in search of his lost dog. It’s the stuff of which movies are made.
A few summers ago, with the help of one of our personalized dog collars, we were involved in just such a drama. Seems Buddy, a golden retriever tagging along to a family reunion far from home, decided to do a little wandering and soon found himself in a dog pound.
Just by chance that day, Orvis customer Peggy Hinson stopped by the pound and took notice of Buddy. Driving away from the pound, she just couldn't get the dog out of her mind. When she got home, she called back and asked if the dog had any identification. She was told he had an embroidered collar with his name and phone number-but no area code. Suddenly it clicked with Hinson that Buddy was wearing the familiar Orvis dog collar.
She took down the information, tried the local area code to no avail, and dialed up Orvis. It took just a minute for Customer Service to search out Buddy's owners, using the seven-digit phone number from the collar.
Eight hours later, a thankful Buddy was reunited with one happy five-year old boy. "Orvis is big in my heart," says Hinson." You saved not just a dog, but a little boy's heart." And just in case Buddy's wandering days aren't over, Orvis has sent him a new dog collar which includes his area code.
