It is quite sad to think of the lengths that we have to go to keep our beloved dogs out of the wrong hands, but dog theft, it seems, is now a sign of the times.
The people who pinch dogs are arseholes, plain and simple.
Microchips or tattoos?
You can get a dog chipped quickly and easily at any veterinary surgery, and it?s pretty cheap, too.
My only reservation is that a chip can be open to abuse from a really unscrupulous thief whereas a tattoo on the ear isn?t.
The other advantage with a tattoo is that it can be seen clearly and doesn?t need to be read by a scanner.
In my opinion a tattoo is definitely better and more tattooing facilities should be made available around the country.
