The Mirror recently reported that councils are putting down 21 stray dogs every day. Most people don’t realise the laws regarding lost dogs.
The sad truth is that if a dog is not claimed within 7 days or if the fine is not paid the officer may dispose of the dog by selling it or giving it to a person he believes will care for the dog, or by giving it to a stray dog centre or the dog can be put down in a manner to cause as little pain as possible.’ For more information, see UK Dog Laws.
The first step to avoiding losing your dog for any length of time is to have them microchipped. The next important step is to make sure your dog wears an ID tag. This way, if lost, you can quickly be reunited with your beloved pet.
We like to think our ID tags help to keep your dog safe in the most stylish way! Check out our great range at Pet-TagsUK.
