Do pigmented red nose pits noses change?

    Aside from losing dogs, microchipping is really your best bet at getting your dog back if it's stolen or identifying a dog if it's dead and unrecognizable. It's inexpensive, too, so there's not really a downside.

    A microchip isn’t of much use if a thief removes it from the dog. Had one of mine stolen a few months back and his chip was taken out and replaced. It was only through dna testing with his littermates that finally convinced the keystone massif the dog was stolen. Tattooing is better than microchipping imo, even better would be to dna profile your pup/dog.

    That sounds like a nightmare.. You wind up getting the dog back?

    Thank you for replying to my post. The people that “found” her haven’t given her back and it all kind of stinks to me. I know she wasn’t chipped. I favor white pits so it really stirred me up when I saw her picture because she reminded me of my first white pit who I lost to cancer. Thanks again, I value your opinions/advice. Don’t let your feelings get hurt on this forum, just consider the source and don’t worry about it! Bye sweetie!

    No she hasn’t gotten the dog back. I told her to take the police with her, she said since she wasn’t chipped they won’t get involved. Poor dog. You’d think the owner would have some kind of vet record? Surely she had taken the pup in for shots!? But you never know. Thanks for caring.

    Yes as do I. Peetie never gets very far away from me. She’s rotten!

    Yes he was located fairly quick. The frustrating part was dealing with the keystone massif who weren’t really interested and made things harder than what it should have been. The fun part was tracing back to the thief, justice is sweet lol.

    I’ve been shall we say distracted these last few months so don’t know what you mean by my feelings getting hurt, but nothing anyone says or thinks about me can upset me. I’m here to debate not get into pettiness. If someone don’t like my opinion then tough, I can’t make them like it.
    From the pictures you posted I don’t think they’re the same dog. My reason for saying so is that noses usually get darker in colouration not lighter as it appears from the pictures posted.

    How is a microchip removed?? When I got a dog from someone and spoke to the vet about the microchip they said they could only put another one in next to the first one. Luckily the previous owner was cooperative about changing to current microchip info.

    Scapel, quick cut, pull chip out stitch back up.

    A vet did that? I guess you can find a vet that will do anything, but the ones I have gone to would have certainly investigated the micro chip before just removing and tossing it.

    Wasn’t no vet. They took the chip out from my dog and replaced it with one on a dog registered to them. If I didn’t have his bro or know where any of his littermates were for a dna test, it would’ve taken even longer to have him returned.

    I figured that was what made it harder than it should of been, they had to actually do their job!

    I think you’re right about the nose.

    I also noticed that the pup has a pretty distinct little divot out of the right ear, you can make it out in both shots. The older dog doesn't. I don't think that would go away, it looks completely healed so wouldn't close any more. Also the colour on the ear tips is missing on the older dog. I don't think it's the same dog personally, sure look a hell of a lot alike though.

    Sorry I got you confused with another person who left the forum.

    in agreement with other posters.. the pup had more coloration on her nose than the dog found. Pigment on noses generally gets darker with age, not lighter. I don't think they are the same dog.
