Default Microchipped dog found but not returned

Just read this story. Makes me wonder what my own state laws are about this. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...-say-back.html

I know in Canada if you buy stolen property, and dogs are property, you are out your money.

It just never occurred to me that a microchipped dog wouldn't be returned to her owner.

But the police dropped the investigation. That's the bugger. It was no longer a criminal matter, but a civil matter.

She could take it to court but she couldnt afford it....

The story is two years old, but I can't seem to find an update to it, if they got the dog back or not.

That is sad. I know if I had bought a dog and it turned out to be a little kid's stolen pet there would be no way I could keep that dog. I'd be driving it myself to take it back to them.

Investigation dropped or not, if you buy a stolen dirt bike they take it from you and return it, you can claim stupid and not be charged. The same should work for in the case of the dog. If there were no leads, and after six months it's understandable there wouldn't be, the case of the original theft and re-sale would be dropped, but ultimately it's my dirt bike, you don't get to keep it just because you didn't steal it, and the case was dropped.

I would be returning the stolen dog as well, or at least replacing it with a new puppy, in this case, since I had the dog longer then they did.

We actually ran into this (or something similar) a couple times at the clinic (usually with cats). A lot of people don't even think to check for a chip. And when you find a chip, you're not obligated to call the number. And if you call the number, you're not obligated to do anything about it. It really sucks.
