Purebred Thefts on the Rise

If you’ve ever had a dog run away or even worse, stolen, then you know the heartache that comes with that, feels beyond repair. We’re sure any pet owner would agree that it is certainly as hard as losing your own child. There are more and more reports of stolen dogs, especially purebreds in urban areas.
We’ve been hearing so much in the last year about how there has been a rampant rise in thefts among purebred Labradors – chocolates seeming to be the highest instances.  Perhaps, this is because as we’ve stated before, quality chocolate labs are hard to find!  Still it’s sickening to think someone would steal one of these babies from their home.
We highly recommend microchipping your dogs to at least help curb the possibility that your dog would be gone forever. All of our dogs are microchipped.  Someone can easily take off a collar with your address on it but if the dog ends up at a shelter or vets office they can easily identify your information on the microchip.
This actually happened to me once!  Someone had purchased a dog from me but my information was still on the microchip at the time.  I got a call from the location that the dog was brought to and they were able to easily identify me with a few simple questions and Megan was able to get back to her home! 🙂  Best feeling ever!
Ask your vet for their recommendation of what brand of microchip to use for your dog.–Liv Sterling

Ahh…. This beauty solves the young Labrador parent dilemma. You know, the one where the lab sees his neighbor for the first time and goes buck crazy, barking loudly and ferociously, and all you can do is apologize because you know he’s really good at home…. Yeah, that problem....
