    Default How can you tell if a dog has a chip?

    I found a 6-10 month old pup, and I was reading on another lost and found board where they tried to have a vet read the chip.

    How can I tell if this pup has a chip, and who can read it? I hate to take him to AC in case they make me turn him over.

    Call local VETS in your area and ask if they have a microchip scanner. Then tell them you want to scan your puppy for a microchip. Or call local shelters and ask if they do or know someone that has a microchip scanner.

    no no no

    I WANT to find his owner !!!

    But in the past, in another county, when we called AC about strays that we caught, we were told we HAD to turn them in.

    I DO NOT want to turn over a pitbull to a shelter. I will go through hell and high water to find him a good home.

    took him to a vet a few blocks away, no chip. The vet said they would probably kill him at AC

    I am going to take him with me to my daughters softball practice tonight. Figure the socialization can't hurt, and maybe someone will find him cute enough to adopt

    I will make sure anyone who adopts him is capable of taking care of him and is aware of what it means to have an APBT. I do not want them making the mistakes I did

    I hope you find the pup's owner, or find a good home for him.
