The beautiful all-white neutered male husky in the picture above went missing on May 10th of 2013 from his yard on the Cass Co/Miami Co line (500 W) in Indiana. It is believed that he was taken by a pet flipper who wanted to sell him for a profit. For those who are unaware, pet flipping is a serious problem in central Indiana and the authorities have a difficult time becoming involved because ownership is difficult to prove without a microchip. As Rocket is not microchipped, his family has offered to do DNA testing in order to confirm his identity and their ownership. Photographs of his paws and mouth will also help to identify this beautiful puppy, should anyone come forward with the dog.

The author of this hub is not affiliated with Rocket's family, but has volunteered to create this page in the hopes that it will generate enough social media attention to help bring him home to the people who have been dedicated enough to search for him for the past 261 days. They aren't giving up! Help us bring Rocket home and ease the burden of their worry and sorrow at his loss.

Rocket is an All-White, Bi-Eyed, Neutered Male Husky

That's him to the right there. He's quite a handsome boy, and you can see why someone might want to take him from his family. It's understandable why such a good-looking, big boy would catch the attention of someone hoping to sell stolen dogs to make a profit. It's sad, too, because his family misses him terribly, and not only do they find him beautiful, they love him. Rocket is a best friend in his family, a companion who must be desperately missing his girl. Can you imagine the joy they would feel if he was returned to them after almost a year of his being missing?

Put yourself in their shoes: What if somebody stole your dog and tried to sell him? What if you thought you'd found your dog, but he was gone before you could get him back? The sorrow you'd feel is unimaginable. Rocket is a member of this family. Help us to get him home!

Rocket has a blue left eye and a brown right eye. He is a striking, all-white neutered male husky who went missing in Central Indiana. His family misses him very much!

What is Pet Flipping?

Pet flipping is a crime in which a person takes an animal (usually a dog but also sometimes cats) from their enclosed yard (or from a tie-out situation) and removes them with the intention of selling the pet to a third party. It is common to encounter pet flipping in central Indiana, where Rocket came from. Dogs and cats are usually moved out of the area from which they were taken and into a new area, meaning that flipped pets could be literally anywhere in the United States.

This is why it's so important for us to reach out to the entire country to help get Rocket back home again! Suggested sightings have occurred as far away as Oklahoma and California, so we have to look absolutely everywhere to see if we can find him for his owners! If you find this page, pass it on to every dog lover you know so that we can help bring him home!

Rocket is Bi-Eyed

Rocket is bi-eyed, meaning that he has two differently colored eyes. This is very important because some of the reported sightings were of dogs with only one color eyes. If you see an all-white male husky and his eyes are both brown or both blue, it's not Rocket! You should also note that it is his right eye which is brown and his left eye which is blue. As you can see in the picture to the right, his blue eye is a very pale blue and his brown eye is a dark brown. He has a very striking appearance and is a beautiful dog. But his family doesn't want him back because he's pretty: They want him back because he's a member of their family. The person who took him only saw a friendly and beautiful purebred husky; His family sees Rocket.

Rocket left behind a family who adores him. Can you bring this all-white male husky home to his family? If you know anything, please don't hesitate to call his family!

The Case for Microchipping

Have you ever had a pet go missing before? A microchip can help you to get your pet returned to you if it has been lost or even if it's been stolen. If your dog is taken to a shelter, the shelter will scan the dog's microchip to determine whether or not it belongs to someone, and you will be contacted. Vets are also able to scan your pet's microchip, so if the pet is stolen and its chip is scanned, you may even be able to recover a stolen pet.

Pet GPS may be another option, but until these systems will track a microchip, they are useless in preventing theft because the GPS collar can be removed.
