Council urges puppy checks after microchipping prosecution

Residents are being urged to ensure that they make the right checks when buying a puppy after a local breeder was fined for failing to microchip a puppy transferred over to a new owner.

Keane Owen of Equity Road, Enderby bred the Dogue de Bordeaux puppies and transferred one to a buyer on 29 October 2020. After the new owner took the puppy to the vets it was found not to be microchipped.

Under the Microchipping of Dogs (England) Regulations 2015, puppies must be chipped before they are given or sold to a new owner. The chip must also contain the details of the breeder when a microchip is implanted. More »

Complying with the law is vital for breeders to ensure that puppies can be traced in any instance of dog theft, or if a dog goes missing.

Mr Owen pleaded guilty and was fined £40 and ordered to pay £200 in costs and a £34 victim surcharge using the Single Justice Procedure.

Councillor Les Phillimore, Portfolio Holder for Housing, Community and Environmental Services, said: "We believe that this is the first prosecution for an offence of this kind in England since the regulations were introduced, and it highlights just how important it is to do your checks on the breeder you're buying from.

"Please also ensure the puppy is at least eight weeks old, microchipped and registered to the breeder."
