24 Feb Puppy Farms – even licensed ones have welfare problems
Above is a screen shot from an inspection report for a licensed puppy breeder in Wales. Unbelievably, the bitches on the farm are being identified by a sheep tag though the ear. We feel sure that the British public would be absolutely outraged to discover animals they consider faithful companions are being treated in such an inhumane way.
This farm sells only through pet shops so prospective buyers have no idea about how good or bad the conditions their puppy has come from. Always ask to see puppies with their mother. Even better, give a home to an animal from a shelter.
Thanks to C.A.R.I.A.D. (Care and Respect for All Dogs) for highlighting this.
