Thank you for your question.
Under Scots law there is no requirement to microchip a dog so there are no rules about this. Obviously if there is a way of transferring an existing chip registration that should be done when the dog is rehomed but that is not a legal requirement, just a matter of good practice.
Happy to discuss further.
