huh, I guess us Okies don't hafta license then, just rabies. Matilda got that done with her last set of puppy shots. I also don't plan on spaying her. Gonna give the breeding thing a shot when she is 2. Just once a year though.
OMG!!! so glad he is safe and sound, although I have all Vegas's shot records including recent rabie shot, I do NOT have him licensed, you know I have never even thought of that!! Crap I better check in to that, I know in Ohio I had to have my dogs licensed but I do not know Florida rules @Bella'sMom ????????
When you get the rabies shot, it should come with a tag. I truly believe this is the license for your county. Now I don't have collars on the dogs while home, so if one did get out, no tags, however I have them micro chipped.
You are so fortunate to have gotten him back! I cannot even imagine going through that. We won't even tie our dog up outside when running into a coffee shop - one of us always stays with him or he stays home. We've been told that people would walk off with him for sure... You were fortunate that whomever found your baby had the decency to turn him in and not keep him for themselves!
I am also in Ontario (like mbuxx) and like many of you in the US, licensing is required here though there is no age stipulation. It's kind of ridiculous how much cheaper it is to license a fixed dog though I understand why the city (Toronto) does it. Chance was licensed as soon as we brought him home - partially as per the City's requirements and partially as per our condo's requirements (our pets must also be registered with property management with proof of City registration and vet information in order to have valid condo registration). The rabies tag comes from the vet and is separate to the City license.
SO glad you found your baby....I can't imagine! I'm sure your dad feels terrible.
Also, just wanted to throw out there that in PA they also do a "lifetime" dog license if you do a microchip. We got Penny chipped when we got her spayed last week & the vet's office gave us the application. It's nice to only do it once & I think only like $30. Something to check into if your bully is microchipped!
WHOA! That's cool! They don't do that where I live because they require annual rabbies vaccination to qualify for the license. But, if I really think about it - they should be able to give out lifetime licenses because, they can always revoke the license if the rabbies shot is expired. But then, I guess they want their twenty bucks! Hah!
