Meh, I have a small tattoo (done at home) and it didn't hurt at all. Bella has a spay tattoo and I have zero doubt in my mind that whatever pain she feels when she bangs her wagging tail against the cabinet/door/chair/my kneecap supersedes the pain of getting a tattoo! Of course, Bella was knocked out when she got her tat. I can imagine how freaked out a dog could get if it wasn't under anesthesia, especially when getting such an intricate design on their belly. Hopefully that poor chihuahua was knocked out or calmed in some manner.

To the OP, I think the design is too intricate for a typical spay tat (Bell's is just a straight, green line-quick and easy for the vet). It could be connected to a breeder, but IMHO, that's less likely. I'd figured that any breeder that would go through the hassle of tattooing a chihuahua would keep closer tabs on it. Of course, I could be 100% wrong. Could just be that someone with a tattoo gun wanted to mark their dog. On the bright side, if this dog has a loving family out there looking for it, it will be super easy to connect them.

1: in order to do ANY tattoo on a dog the dog would have had to be put under...i have many tats, while not "painfull" to me, they certinaly wernt somehting i could have not known was happening.
cosmetic tattooing on dogs is not illegal, nor is it "new" however like a normal spay tattoo its usually done while the dog is already under anesthesia for another procedure.
i know a few artists who do cosmetic pet tattooing, and everything is done under direct vet supervision while the dog is already under, usually these tattoos are none numerical breeder identification, and quite common in areas where dog theives are prevelant (easy to remove most numerical tats by thopping off the ear or changing the numbers...more difficult to cover up a rose, or hello kitty ect...

2: its definatly impossible to see what that origioanlly was at one point, possibly a rose...i wouldnt say its "high class" artwork so id put money that whoever did it did it at home, and not humanely...unless you see a spay scar id assume its ome jack ass "practicing"

3: its a very distinguishing mark, put on your flyers "dog has very distinguishable mark, owner must be able to describe it!"

Well, my friend spoke to animal control, who made a nice poster to put in their public "found" book. They said that they tattoo dogs they fix, and at one time, one of their trainees was rather inept at tattooing, so it is quite possible that the tattoo was done by them. Friend didn't think to ask if they keep a registry of tattoos. I doubt it, since most likely if the dog was spayed by them, the dog would have been licensed and that would have been the only form of id. Only there are no tags with the dog. There's actually 2 dogs...the other a male. Neither one had tags.

A woman asked to look after her poodle while away on 6 month vacation and 5 months into her vacation asked if we would like to keep her dog. We said yes and then the woman would not give us the breeder she came from. The poodle, Molly has a tattoo and a microchip. I would like to have my name put on the owner status now. Does anyone know how I go about this?

My thoughts exactly. Just when I thought I'd heard of everything being done to dogs...
