Can you please give me some opinions on weither to micro chip or not. Is it really worth it or not? The only way it works is if the person that found your dog takes it to the vet and the vet happens to scan it if the person was honest about how they got the dog, right? Or if your dog ends up in a shelter then they automatically scan them, from my understanding. Other than that, aren't they kinda pointless? I really need some advice on this subject but good and bad experiences please. I'm thinking about doing it but really just can't see a good point. I live in the country and people steal full bred dogs at the holiday time. If they steal your dog, they really aren't going to get it checked at the vet for a mirco chip...are they? Someone just stole my Pudden, and she doesn't have her tags on because about a week before she went missing the tags did. Please help me figure out a safe way to keep track of my dogs. I do everything I can but can't help it if someone steals them.
