Beware of rogue breeders Print E-mail
Tuesday, 12 December 2017 12:08

A puppy breeder was recently sentenced to 16 weeks in prison and disqualified from keeping animals for life after RSPCA inspectors raided his premises and found puppies kept in appalling conditions.  He was reported by seven people who had bought puppies from him that later became ill and died.  He had passed himself off as a "caring" breeder, offering to take the puppy to them as a "home check."  Like a breeder who offers to meet new owners in car parks or half way such a suggestion should be like a red flag - steer well clear.  Parliament has called for the introduction of Lucy's Law that will make it illegal to sell puppies unless their mother is present and also sellers will have to allow potential buyers on to their premises.  (Sadly, this still won't stop those rogues who rent or borrow properties for potential sales).  If you are thinking of getting a puppy for Christmas - and we hope you aren't - do be very, very careful.  And remember we are still offering our puppy booklet for free if you email us your address.
