tattoo

Miller has a tattoo on his hip/groin aera, and i was thinking, if a tattoo on a person hurts us, wont it hurt the puppy more? and do they use a special gun> also, why not just tattoo the ears, wouldent it be alot less painful and more easy to see, because his hip is all coverd with hain, but his ear isnt.

was your dog a rescue? i ran into a man in florida who rescued this beautiful yorkie mix and poor thing had a huge tattoo on his belly to identify him. i think it would kill to have tattoo on their belly. first time i ever saw anytihng like it.

My son had a golden rescue and she had a hugh tatoo on her belly with the name of the shelter, they did it when they spay her. It looked so barbaric!!! The hair grew in and covered it, but we knew it was there.

its like the one that they get in there ear for id, but i think they have changed where its supposed to be because they can easly cut off the ear if he was stolen, its like a form of id. Yes i did get him from a reputable breeder. it looks like this but on the hip/groin. this is a form of id if he gets lost, so that they can trace him back to me

Gosh. It's not something typically done to purebred dogs purchased from breeders here in the U.S. Here most dogs are microchipped.

im from canada, and we also got him microchipped.

here is a little bit of info


Tattoos are simply a form of permanent identification to help positively identify a dog in the event that they are lost or stolen. They were the standard before microchip implantation became available. Many breeders and people who show their dogs still choose to do a tattoo (although the inner thigh is a better location because if the dog is stolen an ear can be cut off but a 3-legged dog is not worth much to the kind of people who steal dogs).

Yeah, I believe you. It's just not something we see much in the U.S.

before microchips, I had our dogs tatooed on the belly or thigh. It didn't hurt them, they just laid there. After microchips I got rid of the tatoo instrument. I did notice as the dog aged, the tatoo got "stretched" and harder to read.
