I am at least my Bs 4th owner. I had him scanned at the vets but they couldn't identify what type of microchip he has. I can't find any registration for it. I tried to enroll it at http://www.akccar.org/ but even if I use the unknown brand it won't enroll it. I'm assuming his breeder or first owner had the chip implanted but the person I got him from no longer had the information about the person she got him from. There was a breeder in our area and I found out who her vet was but the vet said she moved away.
I was thinking about having a new microchip inserted but I've read that when scanning it may automatically default with the first chip found and shelters don't look for a second chip. If that's true and the scanner reads this unregistered chip, the shelter won't know he's mine.
Has anyone had this problem? Any suggestions?
He does wear a collar with an ID tag.
My biggest worry is of a huge storm or tornado separating me from my dogs. I had a whole wall of my previous home taken out by a storm a couple years ago. Luckily the one dog that bolted only ran next door.
