    I know how to read and understand CKC tattoos alas no idea with AKC tattoos! Do the numbers and letters mean anything pertaining to birth year etc? I found out Bella is registered and it's a AKC tattoo!!!!

    I think AKC is just randomly selected numbers. They used to have letters, but I don't think do anymore. I could be completely wrong, but I have never heard of them having a system like the CKC or the horse racing industry.

    thats about what I was going to say, it appears to just be a number assigned to the dog. So in theory you could contact them and get all kinds of information on her background, assuming that her breeder (or whoever tattooed her) gave them more than a name and phone number.

    Thanks, that's what I thought, I meant to call on Friday but got too busy at work... I will try Monday. It's on her chip information, she actually doesn't have a tattoo.
