haywatchthis: this guy is a douchbag liar,that dog is tattooed because he thinks it's cool, the same reason he picked that breed of dog so he could look cool


couldn't agree more. in the UK we call these types of dogs 'status dogs'. the only reason to have them is so other people cross the street when you walk them, or, you think they make you look tough with them. the only reasons to get a dogs ears clipped is if they are a working dog or if you are planning to fight them. basically the so called 'humane society' that visited him did not do their job in the slightest

Mr Guy: mbillips: Donnchadha: I like how nobody is pointing out his excuse was that he was having the dog's ears clipped, as if that is more humane or acceptible than a tattoo

But ear clipping is totally humane, just like tail docking. I mean, you don't want their ears shredded when you fight them, right?

/I keed

For min pins, dobbies, and rots, the ear clipping and tail clipping is so when they go after aggressive large prey species (compared to a Min Pit, a rat IS a large species), they aren't injured.  We've gotten hung up on the show purpose of the docking, and forgot it started because these are work dogs bred for a specific purpose.

//As a min pin with undocked ears


Wut? The Doberman breed was created in the late 19th century to be watchdogs. The only "work" they were supposed to do is bite bad people. I'm not sure those qualify as a large prey species. Rottweilers were bred as shepherds and for pulling butcher's carts; most countries ban docking their tails. Min pins, also bred about 100 years ago for the show ring, are no doubt good at ratting, but plenty of terriers do just fine killing rats without any alteration. Ear and tail docking are for dog fights, and aesthetic bullshiat.

dkulprit: My dog was given a tattoo when he got neutered to show he was neutered. When we adopted him we didn't know that and thought it was permanent marker of some sort. I don't see what the big deal is. As other people have pointed out, livestock is treated way worse. Why is giving a tattoo to your dog who is not permanently scarred or damaged such a big deal?


You could make a case that they are treated worse in that they are often fattened up in crowded stinky feedlots and are herded into plants and hit on the head, but as far as identification goes, they are not.

BTW, they don't use electric cattle prods anymore either - not in the US anyway,

Many people would argue that the people working in the plants are treated worse than the cattle they butcher.

"Here is the final results for you haters out there," Rodriguez posted on Facebook. "Animal control came looked at my beautiful dog and left ... wow ... what a waste of tax payers money ... so im still gonna tattoo my dogs when ever i feel like it ... good try haters thanks for all the advertisement."

He's probably going to regret saying that once he realizes how much random strangers on the internet can make his life a living hell.
