Thread: Microchipped Puppies

  1. #1

    Default Microchipped Puppies

    Hi there,

    We recently purchased a Registered Jack Russell puppy (now 12 weeks).

    When we bought him we received a folder with all his paperwork. Now we need to register him with Council and realise he has not been micropchipped.

    I understood in Queensland it is law to microchip animals before sale or transfer.

    Is this law actually enforced or is it a case that we should have checked before buying him?

    Hi Andrea and welcome to the forum!
    Yes, as far as I know he should be chipped.
    I'm guessing that the 'registration' you mention is with the council where the breeder lives? In NSW you can't register a pup with council unless he is microchipped.
    I'm also assuming you haven't yet taken him to the vet for a check-over? When you do go they will scan him to see if he has been chipped.

    Faullin,

    It is very definetely a legal requirement that all pups, born in Qld, have to be microchipped before they are sold. You will need to provide any Qld council with proof of chipping so I would get straight back to the breeder and insist she pays for this to be done immediately.

    Hi Faullyn

    yes in Queensland all dogs and puppies must be microchipped before being rehomed or sold.

    There is something wrong with the breeder. I would get a quote from your fave vet to do it, and then ask the breeder to pay for it, and if they say no - then I'd dob them in to the council where they live or the Queenland department of Primary industries.

    I don't know if it is enforced much but it should be. It's one way to stop irresponsible puppy breeders.

    If they are ANKC registered - you can dob them in to the ANKC also.
