What does your dog’s collar say? My foster dog Saba arrived wearing this tag, “I Am Loved!” on her collar. The shelter she was rescued from provided it. It made my heart melt. Obviously Saba can’t read but I loved this positive affirmation around her neck. Perhaps if someone found her and read that tag they’d be more inclined to get her home.
When I adopted my second dog Joey, he had a collar from the rescue group that read, “Reward, Needs Medications.” When I got him an updated collar with my phone number, I added in “Reward” but the end result made it look like his name was “Joey Reward.” Sigh, I tried. I just did an update on both dogs’ collars – new phone number – and included their names, my phone number and “Reward Offered.” I don’t even know what the reward amount would be. Probably somewhere around a million dollars…When I purchased Happy’s first collar, the pet store encouraged me not to put my address on the tag. They told me it may mean someone would just leave him at my front door instead of keeping him safe until they reached me.
What information do you include on your dog’s collar? Is it something that will increase their chances of getting home to you?
