If you’ve ever thought about having a microchip placed in your beloved pet but haven’t done it, consider the story of Duke.A 75-pound bloodhound, Duke went missing in Watertown two months ago and was found in Warren County on Wednesday.“His owner said he was stolen about two months ago,” said Warren County Animal Control officer Kim Pettrey on Friday. “He was kept in a fenced-in yard and one day he disappeared. He will be reunited with his owner today at 5 p.m. I can only imagine how happy she must be.”Leading to Duke’s return was a call to Animal Control on Wednesday to report a dog that had been hit by a car on Smithville Highway.“We went out as soon as we were called,” said Pettrey of herself and assistant Karla Fischbach.
