Default Rescue with an ear tattoo

Save A Shepherd just took in an owner surrendered 5 year old male and he's got an ear tattoo. The previous owner can't remember the breeder's name (the breeder is/was in Michigan) and lost the puppy paperwork. Is there any way to use the tattoo to find the breeder's information?

The dog is safely in foster care with my family (likely to be a foster failure ), but SASRA does try to let breeders know if their dog ends up in rescue and it would be nice to know more about his background.

What is the tattoo number?
Sometimes, you can try Googling it. With any hope, someone will have typed it into a database like HomeAgain, Find My Pet or any of those others where it may come up in a search.

LOL. You are giving me MUCH too much credit. How do you know the difference?

Tried Google, got nothing. The tattoo is TO8HO1.

Thanks! Although he's from Michigan, he's been in the Philly area most of his life (long story), don't know if that makes a difference. I'll have to relearn how to post a photo here, but he is on the Save A Shepherd Rescue Alliance Facebook page in the meantime. (Floyd at the Souderton Holiday parade) He's a pretty darn handsome black & red.

I don't recognize the pattern. I'm floating the tattoo number out to a couple of my contacts to see if they know what kennel he might be from.
