I just wondered how many people have had their pups microchipped. Do you feel it's necessary?
my 3 eldest are ear tattooed the ear tattooing is seen more in racing greyhounds unfortunately that is why you see some rescue gray hounds without ears as whoever dumped them cut off their ears so they couldn't be traced back. some greyhounds and other dogs are used as bate in dog fights.I had Rio micro-chipped a couple of weeks ago, it was quick and relatively pain free. My friend got a boxer puppy and her breeder had already tattooed the puppy inside his ear as he said micro-chips can be removed. I think any of these options has got to be better because if your dog did get lost or stolen there would be a better chance of getting them back.
I wouldn't even dream of having a dog without it being microchipped. I am also going to pay the one off £10 subscription which offers so much more like if you go abroad on holiday it covers you in those countries too and allows you have other people contactable if he/she is found (for me this is so important because being deaf I couldn't take the call so can add as many others as I want who can take the call.I just wondered how many people have had their pups microchipped.
