Re: Christmas present puppies

[QUOTE=Muddy;1603030]It's from your link Mups the CCTV camera video

I was looking at the one where the man threw the bed down on the pavement and the poor little thing was jumping up at the car .



I beg your pardon Muddy, I'm with you now.
I confess I hadn't watched that video, I was only reading the write ups of tiny pups being sold on line.

So glad Muddy, as I know you will be too.
The clip said he is not officially up for adoption though, not until they find the culprit who dumped him

Can't really see why? Surely finding a loving home needn't stop the investigation, and it must be better than stuck in kennels for an indefinite period?
What if they trace the owner?

Hi Roxy. I think you are totally right. There are people who get dogs for the wrong reasons. I would like to get a dog, but it is also a bit difficult to know who the responsible sellers are too.

Re: Christmas present puppies

Most sellers are not responsible they breed dogs to make money .
How are they going to vet you really and truly ?
People may seem suitable but then are not .

( The dog in the video looked well fed and cared for and obviously poor thing loved its owner )


The alternative is not to buy one get one from a dogs home .
Give a homeless dog dog a second chance
( These are not free a fairly sizeable donation is usual -which IMO is right it shows commitment )

However it has to be said this isn't easy either with some of the gatekeepers that police these operations .

This article is from the USA but it happens here too.

Hi Tony if you want a specific breed you can go online and look for the official breed club. In most instances, they will have a list of approved breeders who have signed up to a code of conduct which includes having tests for any health-related conditions . People should also be prepared to wait for some time for a puppy to become available.

You could of course also get a dog from a Rescue, The Dogs Trust and RSPCA have rescue sites across the country there are also breed specific rescues run by the breed clubs and many smaller local resues.

It is hard to believe that people still do things like that. After all the publicity and the advertising over the years, people still buy animals as Christmas presents. Even worse, they don't research the needs of particular breeds.

And even worse than that, buying a dog for a 3 year old???
It''' just a live toy at that age, they haven't a clue about a puppy's needs, or how to treat it, nor when it is warning them to back off - and neither have the parents by the sound of it.
