PA - A scan of the dog revealed the identification chip. Further investigation by police and Delaware County Animal Control found that the dog was chipped at the Glenolden Animal Hospital.

Based on initial interviews by police, Adams said,
 “The dog seems to have been passed down to various family members after the original owner had the dog chipped.”

According to Adams, the animal hospital was able to provide the name of the owner at the time Bell was implanted with the microchip. Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Daniel Leicht at 610-586-0502, or Delaware County Animal Control at 610-522-1113.

Rottweiler Found Shot To Death In Cemetery - Pa.

If you have any information, you're asked to call Collingdale police at 610-586-0502.

COLLINGDALE, Pa. -  A Rottweiler dog was found shot to death laying on a patch of grass at the Mt. Zion Cemetery in Collingdale Tuesday evening.

According to the Collingdale Police Department, officers were called to the cemetery at 5:30 p.m., where they found the dog laying in an area toward the back of the cemetery with a dog treat just inches away from its mouth.

Police report noticing a wound to the top of the dog's head. An empty shell casing and a live round were found seven feet away.

A microchip embedded in the dog helped police and Delaware County Animal Control investigators to trace the dog's last registered owner, a resident who lived on Chestnut Street in Collingdale.

Investigators say injuries to the dog led them to believe it was either used as a bait dog for fighting or a fighting dog.

A person interviewed by police described the dog as being friendly.

Police are now searching for the dog's last owner, who they believe to be named Paul Henderson.

If you have any information, you're asked to call Collingdale police at 610-586-0502. - October 17, 2012

Connecticut: Rottweiler Stella seized and held by AC at an undisclosed location .

Please note:  The Rottweilers owner received a verbal warning from one of the police officers involved in the case. This officer told her not to go public with the case, as it would not be in her best interest.

In December, 2011, police raided a house looking to arrest a Colchester, Connecticut woman for breach of peace. The police burst through her front door. The woman's two Rottweilers, Stella and Tazzy, did what any dog would do in this situation: they barked and carried on at these unknown “intruders” and tried to protect their owner.
Rottweilers Stella and Tazzy
When an officer became physical with the owner and pinned her to the ground, one of the dogs, Stella, nipped the cop’s behind. No skin was broken. However, both dogs were seized by Colchester Animal Control.

And now Stella, a beloved pet, is still locked up with an uncertain future because of it.

One of the dogs, Tazzy, has since been released, after living in miserable conditions at the shelter. He was said to be in poor condition after the months he spent there. Ten months later, Stella is still being held in her caged prison at an undisclosed location. No one knows how Stella is, since her owner is not allowed to visit her.
