LET THE BUYER BEWARE!
It seems astonishing that there are still many people today who aren’t aware of the practice of puppy farming. Unfortunately, even those who are aware of the term can still be scammed by unscrupulous dealers. These buyers often have little understanding of the cruelty and heartbreak this industry is capable of inflicting until they experience it first hand. The cruelty is canine, the heartbreak is human.
There are bad people in our world who are enjoying the fruits of suffering dogs’ labours, some earning six figure sums and living in immaculate houses while a few yards away, their animals are not even afforded the most basic care and attention which is expected of them by the animal welfare act. Simple things like clean drinking water, regular food and dry bedding. Exercise, mental stimulation, socialisation or affection are not a consideration when it comes to treating these dogs as breeding machines. Often they are kept in conditions that would be considered unacceptable for agricultural animals by DEFRA. But these are not agricultural animals. These are domestic, companion animals.
So, if you’ve ever thought ‘how much is that puppy in the window,’ or been tempted by an online trade ad, or a handwritten card placed on a public noticeboard in your local shop, pet store or vet clinic. please read these true stories from unsuspecting dogs lovers who learned the hard way about puppy farming in the UK. This is one time in your life that you really want to learn from other peoples’ mistakes.
