    QuestionPurebred Tattoo

    Just curious, are all purebred Labs (or any dog for that matter) supposed to be tattooed or something? My friend was over the other day & while we were playing with Diesel he asked where his tattoo was...

    Is he supposed to have one? I got him from a breeder, I saw the paperwork & info about his parents, I don't get the actual paperwork until he gets neutered though so I can't reference to anything but was assured his is a purebred Lab. I'm not breeding or showing him so I really don't care, he clearly looks & acts like a Lab so I'm not questioning it but is this something that all breeders normally do?

    No. But some show dogs are tattooed. A friend of mine adopted a former show Basenji and he has one. It's certainly not required as pedigree documentation.

    You are in Canada, so the answer is 'Yes'. But there's more...Your purebred dog registered with the CKC MUST BE PERMANENTLY identifiable via microchip or a tattoo.

    If your dog has a microchip, you're good to go. If not, the CKC will not register your dog.

    Libby has two tattoos! One on the inside of her ear, it's her kennel # mama's initials or something. She also has a tattoo on the inside of her back leg for her lifetime liscense.

    Here in Mexico registered dogs get both a tatoo and a microchip. Of course you can have a purebred dog that is not registered and it won´t have a tattoo or microchip.

    Guide dog organizations tattoo their pups also. Sundance has tats in each ear. We tell people they were from his time in the Big House.

    Sammy and Kona are both tattoed in their ears (breeder), along with being microchipped. They are both CKC registered.

    Libby's breeder has search and rescue dogs, maybe that's why she tattooed her ear.

    Abbey has a tattoo on her tummy where she was spayed, but that's it.
