Millions of dog owners will have to pay for their pets to be fitted with a microchip, under plans set to be announced next week.

Ministers are expected to say that every newborn puppy should be fitted with a device giving details of who they belong to.

The information will reportedly be stored on a central database which can be accessed by police and the RSPCA .

The government believes the proposals will make it easier to trace and prosecute owners of violent dogs.
