    Yes. Always microchip. Gunny came from the breeder microchipped at 8 weeks. Denali, our boxer, we microchipped at about 10 weeks and didn't have any issues.

    I had my pup chipped during his first vet visit @ 8 weeks. He did let out a little cry but that was it. This breed is very popular (and usually expensive) making them susceptible to theft. While chipping doesn't prevent theft, it can help you get your sweet pet back if such an awful event should happen. I had many things to worry about with my new puppy, at least chipping eased one of my worries. Enjoy your new baby!

    Zeus was microchipped at 8 weeks. He didn't even cry out! No issues later either. I would definitely do it again in case he was lost or stolen.

    I would definitely get him chipped ... if he gets lost or stolen then it will be easier for whoever has him to track his rightful owner if they want to. My understanding is that the needle is a little bit bigger, but not noticeably so!

    I was thinking of chipping our new pup. But if he's stolen etc, what good is the chip?
    Doesnt a vet have to scan the chip? Is there a standard place they get is placed and is is standard procedure for a vet to look for a chip to scan...... If he goes to a vet after being missed.
    I was under the impression it's like a LoJac system til recently. Now that would be nice
    thank you

    Yes, if your bully is Stolen then you contact all the vats in your area with the microchip number and description of your dog. I have a friend who got their bulldog back after two years this way of it being stolen!!!

    Both my pups were microchipped by the breeder before he sold them, I don't know at which age they did them, but I would have done them when they were spayed and neutered if they hadn't been done.

    My vets reccomended waiting with Meeko sayin it can be painful for them and that they would do it when he gets neutered but i asked them to do it then when he was about 10 weeks and they did (rather be safe than sorryy
    no pain no gain lol) ..He looked like it hurt and it bled a bit after bit he was fine and i felt better knowin he had been chipped incase anything happened

    Both Bea and Bo were chipped by the vet -- not the breeder.

    I really love that our breeders here chip before the pups leave. That's nice.

    I have my vet chip at the 1st possible appointment - for 2 reasons, its MY VET and I SEE it done, 2nd, I get the paperwork to send in (any idea how many dogs are Chipped but NOT registered with the chip agency? too many for my liking!)
