Re: its christmas time
This has been going on for sooo long, but no doubt does increase towards Christmas.
Some foreign vets are rogues too and it is well known that for 'a fee' they are happy to lie on the paperwork about the pups ages, and vaccinations.
Also the people this end need more training on noting obvious differences between a 4 week old baby and a 10 week old one !! They let these tiny suckling pups enter.
The system is scandalous, and many, many puppies are either dead on arrival or die soon afterwards. It makes my blood boil.
As well as the exporters and the importers, the buyers are equally to blame for not doing their homework too IMO. Without the buyers, this trade would stop.
