Identifying Dogs In Rescue
Kimbertal Kennels of Pennsylvania tattoos their puppies on the inside of the upper thigh, usually the left leg. *They start with a "D" then usually are followed by two numbers to identify the dog. Kimbertal keeps a list and if contacted, can tell you who got the puppy from them. *This is a good thing to know because a Doberman from their kennel was stolen before Christmas, ended up in rescue and was happily reunited with her family because of the tattoo and Kimbertal's assistance.
After the happy conclusion of this case, I believe that ALL breeders should be required to either tattoo or microchip puppies they sell. It can help reunite a much loved missing dog with it's family or if the dog is dumped by a despicable purchaser/owner, they can be identified and put on a "do not sell to" list that could be shared.
There was a case several years ago in which a dog from a highly respected breeder ended up in rescue, from a kill shelter, and it was identified. The breeder was contacted and worked with the rescue to rehome the dog. The purchaser did not want to confess to the breeder that they took on more than they could handle so dumped the dog thinking no one would ever know? I know that is hard to believe but it does happen. Hopefully the people who dumped the dog learned the Doberman was not for them but who knows?

All dogs registered with the Canadian Kennel Club are required to have a tattoo or microchip before leaving the breeder.
Priscilla was identified by the rescue through her tattoo.
