Default What Could This Ear Tattoo Mean....?

Hi,

My sister, who lives on the Isle Of Man has recently adopted an
Alsatian dog from a rescue centre. The dog is about 4 years old. He has
a tattoo in his ear which is blue and reads 'HBO' followed by some
numbers but no-one knows much about his history so we're interested to
find out what it could mean. Perhaps he has been trained as a police
dog but fund to be unsuitable. Can anyone shed any light on what this
ear tattoo might mean?

Thank you.

police dogs that fail to make the grade are rehomed through rescue
centres so you would have been made aware on adoption.
its possible for the pet owning public to have a dog tattooed as a
means of i.d. maybe this is whats happened?
there is a tattoo directory for the uk maybe they can tell you
something of his past.

Some areas require that a dog be tatooed if you purchase a life time dog
liscense. It's more likely that's what this is for.

in the uk we dont need to have dog licences although i dont think its a
bad idea. by law all our grey hound racers are supposed to be tattooed
to stop the owners from dumping them when the carreers are over and the
moneys been made.
only now some of these greedy gits are cutting off the ears and turning
them loose. one such owner gave some guy in a pub 10 to do away with
a dog and get his ear off. the man took the dogs ear then left him to
bleed by the time the dog was found it was so badly injured the vet put
him down straight away.
