Default Tattoo in ear...

...my German Shepherd has tattoo in his ear, I was wondering if there is a registry that carries the pet's info from the tattoo. If you look hard you can see it a bit in his right ear, sorry I cut the ear off a bit in the photo.

Wow! Beautiful dog! Can't help with the tattoo registry but I'm sure someone will answer that one.

Did notice your choke chain with tags - Please be very very very careful with that. Choke chains really should only be used when walking/training and taken off the dog afterwards. We have seen way too many situations where a dog got snagged on something while in the yard or loose and was hanged. Tags, although they seem like a good idea for ID just make it more likely because it's an extra thing to get caught. Much better to put the tags on a flat buckle collar and save the chain for training/walking only. Flat collars pose their own risks (there's an active thread about that right now) but are much much safer than a choke chain which can easily function as a noose.

What does the tattoo say? Many breeders use a similar scheme. Where was the dog born?

He was born in Germany but shipped here at 5 weeks old. I believe he was tattooed here by the breeder, I know it is a form of identification. The tattoo says HB5BHC1 and his whelp date is 6/18/05, I was just wondering if there was a central registry for these.

No, unfortunately there isn't one single, central registry for tattoos.

Though looking at the tattoo number of your dog and the breeder you got the dog from (in another of your posts) it's likely that tattoo may be registered with the United SchH Clubs of America. Your breeder should be able to tell you for certain if his tattoo was registered with any of the different ID registries.

I registered my girl's tattoo with the AKC under "Identification Information" on my dog's record. Their microchips are also input there in addition to Home Again.

Oh I see. I don't think so. Nikon has to have one too for show and stuff so it's stamped on his pedigree by the WDA. But for help finding him I got a microchip since the shelters around here have no way of looking up tattoos.

Which is too bad, as I know of one locally that was bred/tattoo'd in Italy, came up missing here in MI and never found. I'm sure someone has him, but the tat was his only ID and of course, they can't trace it(probably don't want to find the origional owner anyway) There should be a universal database for this, IMO
