Chuy is home! Thank you to everyone who shared this post and helped look for VSP K9 Chuy! An even bigger THANK YOU to the area resident who spotted the German shepherd, was able to get ahold of him, and called police. The beloved escape artist was located a short distance from his Nokesville residence…and undoubtedly has a tale to tell about his adventures today! He’s now safely back home, much to the relief of his handler, Trooper West, and his “mom.” We also appreciate the response and search efforts of Prince William County Police Department and Animal Control!

Trooper Brandon West also thanked the community for helping to locate Chuy.

“The biggest take away is the fact that I am out of town and the community came together to do this on my behalf. I am overwhelmed by the support.”
