Dog Microchipping to be made compulsory in Ireland

Monday, February 23rd, 2015

According to recent newspaper and radio reports, from September 2015 all puppies will require to be microchipped and from March 2016 all dogs will have to be microchipped.



It would be wonderful if this meant that all found dogs would be quickly re-united with their owners – we are all volunteers here on and we love to hear of dogs being reunited with their owners


Reunited Dog after 5 Months Missing

Friday, January 15th, 2010

Lovely email today from Lucia Wilde aka LurcherLover


My lurcher bailey was stolen last march from castlepollard in westmeath. SHE HAS BEEN FOUND!

A wonderful couple in Kilkenny 5 months ago found her in Kilkenny. They only recently saw her picture on the internet and checked to see if she was chipped. They rang me at the weekend and I confirmed it was her.

I wanted to thank the forum for their help, advice and support. I will collect her at the weekend……I am soooo happy to get my girl back safe and sound.

Thanks and warm regards.
Lucia Wilde


Here is a photo of Bailey home now safe and sound after 5 months missing!

Lost Dog Reunited Story

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

Re-posting a great story from a member ClaireBoyles – Claire was reunited with her dog Sasha thanks to the site. Great news Claire and we appreciate you telling your story!



I rang the DSPCA, local vets, Garda stations etc but no one had found Sasha. I honestly didn’t think I’d ever see her again and I just hoped that she’d been found by someone who would give her a nice new home & that she was safe.


I received a phone call from a lovely lady called Brenda who had a little brown & white dog who’d been found in the Phoenix park. She asked me did Sasha have a collar, and what colour was it? I told her green leather- I’d bought it in Italy for her last summer. So sorry, said Brenda this collar is black- best of luck finding Sasha. I was really disappointed, but there wasn’t anything I could do.


5 mins later Brenda rang back- her collar IS green :)


I was delighted, I couldn’t believe it!! Sasha had been found!! I can’t remember the last time I was so happy about hearing some news!!


Sasha had been found in the Phoenix park very muddy on Thursday morning, near the President’s residence & one of the members of staff knew Brenda and knew that she had been looking for a dog so they called her. Brenda & her 2 teenage children then set about seeing if anyone had lost a dog, because Sasha was obviously someone’s pet – not a stray. They got onto the internet and found her on and rang me. :)


If it wasn’t for twitter & the amazing amount of help & support that I received – and people telling me about the websites for lost dogs I would never have found her. I am SO grateful, thank you everyone who helped find Sasha. I am so delighted that there is a happy ending to this story!


As you can see from the picture she is very happy to be at home again. When I picked her up on Saturday I’ve never seen her so excited & delighted to see myself & Goldie. She doesn’t understand how well known she is- this morning on our run someone shouted over to us across the road that they’d seen her in Phoenix park & glad to see we’d been reunited! Let’s hope she’s learned her lesson- I certainly have, she’s not getting off the lead again at night I can tell you!
