Why oh why do people insist on not using them? I found a shitzu this evening. Typically it had a collar but no tag. I had a good ring around, contacted all the vets, and took it for a wander around the roads incase its owner was looking for it. All this hassle could have been prevented if it was wearing a name tag like the states it should be. One phone call would have been all it took. I was just about to take it to the vets to be scanned when another dog walker spotted us and recognised it. They then were able to track down its owner. It = Dave, and he's just been picked up (after i spent a few minutes chasing a huge flea through his fur). It wasnt his owner who collected him, but i told them about getting a tag, and suggested he was treated for fleas. These things would be so much simpler if people just used common sense.
