DOGS NOW NOSEPRINTED TO PROVE OWNERSHIP
Taking noseprints of dogs to guard them against loss or theft is the method being adopted by western owners. When two persons claim the same dog in court, ink noseprints, like the specimen illustrated, settle the matter. Like human fingerprints, the patterns on the nose of the dog are said not to change with age, and therefore a pet need submit but once to having its nostrils smeared with ink. No two dogs have identical patterns so a mistake is impossible.
