missing dogs...

As I was looking through the paper today, I noticed a lot of purebred dogs have come up stolen from peoples yards again. So on a hunch looked up the adds and found a small animal auction in a week... I bet a group of Bunchers are around somewhere... Makes me sad to see.

You better believe my dogs will only go outside with supervision.

My Pom is not allowed outside unless I'm with him. Not only because I'm paranoid that someone will take him (which wouldn't be hard - he loves everyone), but he's also not neutered (personal preference). I know how males are when there's a female anywhere nearby that's in heat. I would feel AWFUL if he sired a litter of pups because of my negligence to keep him contained.

It seems that would be kind of risky for the person holding the auction....... if someone has their dog micro chipped it's not possible to SEE that when the pet is stolen. If an owner went to this auction, saw their pet, and called the cops it would be easy to prove it's theirs.

The auctioneer would have to tell WHO put the animal up for auction and that person is busted...

true. Dogs are not listed on the auction. mainly small farm animals. BUT class B sellers troll some auctions for animals they can buy in back door deals. hard to catch. And with missing dogs this time of year, then they will be heading to Another state for sale, and most grade B sellers do not ask or care where the dogs come from.

It seems like not many people microchip their pets though, unfortunately. I don't know a single person who microchips their pets (cats or dogs). I do everything possible to always insure that, on the off-chance they do get out, they're returned to me.
Matrix is chipped, and my Pom is both chipped and licensed with the state. (Unfortunately, cats can't be licensed). Ozzy has 3 tags on his collar. One with my info, his license tag, and one with his microchip number and the phone number to call. If he was turned into the shelter, in the incident his collar fell off, they could read his chip and give me a call.

Another thing - many people that microchip their pets don't register the chip. So they have a chip, but when, say, a shelter scans it, there's no information on it. That was the first thing I asked when getting them both chipped. I had it done at the shelter for both, and they register the chips for you, which I thought was neat. (Then you don't have to pay the extra fee to register it yourself online).

The person taking my dogs would be lucky to make it out of my yard in one piece. Mama don't play with her babies.
