My family and I have a wonderful opportunity to relocate to France for my job. However we happen to have what I worry would be considered a category 1 dog?! I have been trying to find information on the process of assigning dogs to categories but it’s been confusing. This site came up with an old post from someone in a similar situation. Hopefully I can get some guidance from the group here?
I understand the requirements for vaccines, neutering, microchip, etc.
What I am not clear on is if it is it even possible for me to move and take the dog if he is deemed to be category 1 dog. Can anyone help me understand the procedure involved? He is “officially” identified from the shelter we adopted him in the US a Boxer mix but could be Pitbull or at least confused with one. I can follow whatever restrictions are in place such as muzzles and leashes and in reality he is no particular danger to people or dogs. Is it complicated but possible for us to move with him or will he not allowed in the country? How do we know before we commit to the move?
Thank you in advance for any help with this.
