Lookup Australian Tattoo


Recommended Posts

Greyhound Data has the option to lookup Australian listings. Nothing comes back for the one you posted. In looking around, that tattoo doesn't seem to follow the formats that I've found posted for Australia, although one post I found indicated that every state in Australia has it's own format for "ear branding" as it's referred to there. I never did find another source to look them up. Maybe Dick has a source that can help?

 

Hope you find it!

Mary Pat, If it narrows it down for you at all, the tattoo you posted is the new format being used in Victoria, Australia. I found a reference to it in searching around and the new format there is 5 Letters, all in one ear only.

 

The only search I found is by racing name, http://www.grv.org.au/racing/dog-search/

Thanks Dick.

 

She's a Canidrome dog. I was told her name is Cee Magic. But that's a 2 yr old boy.

And her tats are crystal clear.

 

I'll send an email, but I wonder if I'll roll craps because these dogs weren't supposed to be shipped to China.

 

I guess it can't hurt to try.

Hi,

did anyone have any luck finding a website to do a ear brand search. My grey's tat is NCEAA. 

So far I know that means NSW, C=2013, EAA=???

thanks

Grahame.

Hi Grahame,

This is an old FB thread, but in the comments, near the bottom, is says the last three letters are just the number of the pup.

Greyhound-Data has a tattoo search engine, but I didn't find a match for your dog.

Hope you get some answers.

Hi folks,

 we are trying to find the background of our boy. He is black with a white arrow shaped blaze. His tattoo VCEGJ. We were told by the folks at the shelter that he was formerly known as 'Cashin' In' but that dog does not look like ours in video footage (ours does not have a white tip on tail.) 

Any leads on tattoo identification in Victoria?

Hey guys!  

Also interested in tattoo leads. 

I've emailed a few places listed here so hopefully get some info. I just recently adopted a grey. She's a beauty but there is no information about her at all. Her ear tag tattoo seems to read VFPJZ - VFPJ are very clear, the last letter could be Z or D.

I take that she was registered in Victoria, F supposedly means she was born in 2016, although the agency said she looked between 2-3. 

No name or anything, so it's tricky.
