The owners kid is 6 years old and is taking it pretty bad that his dog is gone. The dogs name is Ceasar and he is about 9 months old, the dog is mix of setter and beagle. A kennel from the area offered the boy a new puppy but they would like there dog back. I cant believe how low some people will go.

Any chance the dog is chipped or has a tatoo?

Not 100% sure but the dog may have a I.D. tattoo under its ear.

The dog was found in Florida. The little guy made it a long way. The vet found the tattoo on the ear. (not sure what it even is) the dog will be back home in a few days.

Thats amazing! The odds were very much against the, great to hear the happy ending.

It was some sort of ID tattoo or how did the vet know this was a stolen dog or contact the owners? I know you said you're not sure what it is, but I'd be curious if anyone else knew, because it obviously works.

Hey! Have they gathered the firing squad yet for the thief? Or the flogging team? How about the waterboarding gang?

Sign me up for all three.

Oh....the buried- in -the -sand near the ant hill mob too!!

For those who are going to tattoo their dog.

The preferred location is on the inner leg where it meets the belly. It has been proven that on rare occassions the ear or portions of the ear were removed to take away the tattoos ability to I.D. the animal. Plus the tattoo is readily seen by anyone examining the dog.

Many people use their social security number or D.L. number... you can be easily tracked down by that.

Glad the pup was found! I'm sure the owners are thrilled to know he's coming home.

Good Luck!

Don't mean to hijack the thread, but after reading this, I'm concerned. What is the best way to "tag" your dog? Implants? Tatoo?

Both! and neither...

What I mean by that is this... having it tattoo'd and having it chipped combined gives you the best chance of seeing your dog again. Especially if it gets 'lost'. But having either/or of the techniques done means little to a thief. They will do what is needed to not make the animal "known" to be stolen...

The tattoos are readily visable and if lost in an outstate area where no chip scanner is available, the tattoo helps with positive ID... the chips are easily scanned and have idependent ID #s, so if a stray is brought in, most metro areas require the stray dog to be scanned, then the number is read, call up the company, they view their data base and walla! The dog finds it way back to you!

To these methods I also employ a "REWARD" note on my collars. My dogs wear a coated nylon collar when hunting (both reg. collar and e-collar) and I write with a permanant marker "REWARD" and my phone number on the inside of the collar. I don't want people to know the dogs name or my address. Reasons are simple... If they know the dogs name they already cleared a huge hurdle in gaining the dogs trust and they may end up keeping it to be their new best hunting dog. Also if I put my address on there, it gives them the ability to scan my residence to see if other dogs would fit the bill... I know it may be a little "Black Helicoptor-ish", but I prefer to keep it simple. Play off their desire to get a reward and a phone number... that's it. Along with chips I feel I have a good chance of seeing them come home.

I used to tattoo, but haven't since running trials. We used to have a tattoo'er come in once a year and do your dog for I think $15... but I have no idea who does them now... they are nice to have done though if you find someone who will do one for you.

Good Luck!

Ken

If anyone knows the details of how the dog was found and identified; how connection made with owners in MN etc. it would be nice to hear about it. Nice to know the system works now and then.

And what is this stuff with you guys.....no volunteers for the flogging squad even?

I'll be right there for the flogging, it makes me sick to think of that happening. Glad to here it may have a happy ending. Hopefully, that would never happen to my setter, she kicks me a couple times a night to let me know she's there. I know how it is, I'd let her drive the truck, but her feet don't reach the pedals.

What a great story ending!

I'm also standing in line!

I dont have the whole story because I haven't been able to contact the owner except through voice mail. But here is how the dog was found. Who ever stole the dog tried to remove the I.D. on the dogs ear, the dog got a bad infection and the person brought the dog the vet. When the vet saw the infection and the I.D. he figured out that the dog was probabaly stolen.

Its going to be interesting to hear how the dog ended up in Florida and if the person that stole him got caught.

I will keep you guys updated.

(my wife is a tattoo artist so maybe she can look into doing I.D.'s for dogs)

      The reason I asked @eyeguy 54 is during the day that ramp parking lot at Cathedral is always full of student parking. Can't understand how they get away with it. During the week prior to Governor's Opener we never had any issues during the weekdays, but now on school days, we just launch at Wilson Park. BTW, did you find any walleye on the down current sides of the sandbars in that stretch?
    • Walleyeslayer25
      We use to go there until a few years ago. Now we are right next store. I couldn't figured out how to get into my old account so I had to make a new one. My old screen name was deershooter.  
    • Neutz68
      Yep that's us... Cabin #2 and #3...  You part of the other group we chat with up there??

      Thanks for the reply.  Have had much time for research this year. Do you usually stay at pine tree cove?

      People who enjoy the North Shore and Lake Superior and want to help shape its future are encouraged to consider volunteering to serve on the Governor’s Council on Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program.  This is a citizen advisory group that sets grant funding priorities, reviews grant applications and recommends projects to receive funding through the Coastal Program. All funded projects benefit Minnesota’s coastal area. The 15-member council is made up of three representatives each for Carlton, Cook, Lake and St Louis counties and three at-large positions that can be filled statewide. There are ten available seats on the council. The council meets about five times per year at various North Shore locations. Council members receive travel reimbursement and serve 60 to 70 hours per year while fulfilling a two or three year term. All adult Minnesotans are eligible to serve. Anyone interested can apply online at the Minnesota Secretary of State website or download a paper application. For more information about the Coastal Program’s work and service area, see the program webpage. Questions about the Coastal Program and application process can be directed to Amber Westerbur, Coastal Program manager, at 218-834-1445 or amber.westerbur@state.mn.us.

      There are plenty of fun places to go and things to do this Memorial Day weekend at Minnesota state parks and trails.  Here are some last-minute travel-planning tips: Camping. Sites are still available. Reservations are now required for all overnight stays at Minnesota state parks and recreation areas, and many sites are already booked, but here are some options: — Check www.mndnr.gov/reservations more than once. There are often cancellations, and the inventory of available sites changes all the time. –Take advantage of the long weekend to explore Minnesota’s northwest territory. Sites are easier to come by at the state parks and recreation areas in that part of Minnesota, and there are plenty of reasons why it’s worth the drive: — Zippel Bay State Park is located on south shore of vast Lake of the Woods, with a white sand beach. — Lake Bronson State Park has an observation tower that people can climb for a bird’s-eye view of the woods and wildlife below. — Plan a route to include visits to other state parks along the way, such as a stop to see the Headwaters of the Mississippi River at Itasca State Park. — Pitch a tent at a state forest, where no reservations are needed (or taken). Campsites at state forest campgrounds are all first-come, first-served. Naturalist-led programs. There are more than 100 programs taking place at state parks and trails over Memorial Day Weekend. For example:
      — Guided tours will take place throughout the weekend (and continue daily through Labor Day) at Forestville/Mystery Cave State Park in southeastern Minnesota and at Lake Vermilion-Soudan Underground Mine State Park near Ely in the northeast. Because the cave and mine tours are underground, it won’t matter if it rains. Reservations recommended; visit www.mndnr.gov/reservations for more information, including times and prices. —   Free guided tours over, under and through the fascinating rock formations known as glacial potholes will be offered Saturday, Sunday and Monday from noon to 1 p.m. at Interstate State Park. No reservations required. —  Plus, live reptiles, voyageur canoe rides, star programs, and more. For complete listings, check the online calendar. Discovery hikes. Look for deer, birds and wildflowers along one of the many scenic trails at Minnesota state parks and recreation areas. Pick up a Hiking Club kit ($14.95 at park offices), look for “secret passwords” on signs along specially marked trails and earn rewards. Two-wheel tours. Bike one of Minnesota’s many paved state trails. They’re free and mostly flat, because many of them are former railroad routes, and many of them now have trailside tune-up stations, if there is a need to tighten brakes or pump up tires. Find a trailhead at www.mndnr.gov/biking. Paddling. There are 35 state water trails, the newest of which is the 20-mile Shell Rock River. Many of the campsites along Minnesota’s rivers are first-come, first-served and free. See bison. See one herd at Blue Mounds State Park in southwestern Minnesota (and attend a program at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, May 27, about how the park’s bison herd links directly to the millions of bison that once roamed North America). Or drive through the bison range and see the other herd at Minneopa State Park in Mankato. Fishing. Minnesota residents don’t need a license and can fish for free at most state parks. Many park offices also loan out free fishing equipment for visitors to use. Or for people who have a license, they can wet a line at more than 1,600 fishing piers throughout the state. To find a nearby fishing pier, search by lake or county in the A-Z list at www.mndnr.gov/fishing_piers. Geocaching. Try this high-tech treasure hunt. Many parks loan out GPS units and offer programs to get started, such as the Intro to Geocaching program from 10 to 11 a.m. Monday, May 29, at Wild River State Park. For information, contact the DNR Information Center at info.dnr@state.mn.us or 888-646-6367 (8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday). Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Guided public tours of Soudan Underground Mine, the state’s first iron ore mine, will resume for the 2017 season on Memorial Day weekend. Tours will be offered from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, May 27 through Sept. 30, and on weekends only until Oct. 22 at Lake Vermillion – Soudan Underground Mine State Park near Tower.   Underground mine tours take visitors a half-mile down into the mine shaft in a hoisted “cage” and then for a three-quarter-mile train ride into the last and deepest area mined. Mine interpreters share information about the unique, high-quality iron formation and its contribution to the industrialization of the United States and the generations of people who worked in the mine from 1884 to 1962. “About 32,000 people take the underground mine tour each year, and it’s an experience you won’t find anywhere else in Minnesota,” said mine interpreter James Pointer. Guided tours are $12 for adults and $7 for children age 5-12. There is no cost for children under age 5. Hard hats are required and provided for underground tours, and visitors are encouraged to check the park Web page for suggestions about recommended footwear and clothing (it can be chillier than expected in the mine, because the temperature is 51 degrees Fahrenheit year-round). Visitors also can take a free, self-guided tour of the historic mining buildings that are above ground. For information about tours and reservations, visit www.mndnr.gov, email the DNR Information Center at info.dnr@state.mn.us or call 888-646-6367 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Saturday.
