Question:

797. Deputy Eoin Ó Broin asked the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine if the microchip database of an organisation (details supplied) records the unique identifying code of the person who implants the microchip and registers the dog; if his attention has been drawn to the fact that the recent seizure of 33 dogs by An Garda Síochána and another organisation were registered on the pet sellers list as billionaire bully and online adverts listed by the pet seller indicates that the dogs were registered with the first organisation; and if a commitment will be given to investigate if the dogs were in fact legally registered.

Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The Microchipping of Dogs Regulations, 2015 includes the requirement to record the unique identifying code of the person who implants the microchip and registers the dog. Information available to my Department indicates that the microchip database referred to records this information in compliance with the regulation.

As the seizure of the animals referred to is the subject of a Garda investigation, it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.
