Markeisha, it does make sense to believe that the puppies would belong to you if the mother of those puppies was your dog at one time. However, be prepared to provide proof to substantiate your claim. In your post, you state that your dog was stolen. Is there a police report on file? A police report would be helpful in court. For pet verification services, do you recall if the dog has a microchip and was it registered? If your dog does have a microchip, when filing a police report, ask to have the serial number along with the dog’s description, posted in the stolen article category on the National Crime Information Center.

I believe pet theft is recognized as a felony or misdemeanor in most or all states, but check with authorities in your state for clarification.

Markeisha, I hope this information is helpful. Please contact me directly at vantillon@checkbca.org if I can be of further assistance.

As stated, you’ve filed a police report, and the dog is chipped. The next obvious steps would be to follow-up with the police department and then go the legal route. All you can do at this time is present the evidence, i.e. microchip serial number, police report, pictures, that will substantiate your case.
