    In the Pets Paradise near where I work some dogs stay in there for up to a month, nothing worse that seeing a lone pup just wanting someone to love it sitting in the window or when you see working dogs/large breed pups stuck in those little glass boxes.

    If this legislation is actually enforced, I think it will be a "good thing". But the world weary traveller in me suspects that it won't be enforced and the lot of the puppy mill cross breeds won't change one scrap (but I hope I am wrong.....).

    I really am not a cynic in most things, but I have been beaten into a state of 100% pure bred and finely filtered cynicism by the legislation that affects dogs both in Australia and overseas.

    For example, most Australian states have had Dog Acts in place for years that well and truly covered the problems of individual dangerous dogs, and if these pieces of legislation were properly enforced, we would not have a problem with individual dangerous dogs. However, our under resourced local governments have never been able to adequately address their legislated responsibilities under the various State dog acts.

    So various state governments have resorted to draconian bits of legislation (that we call "BSL") in the folly that they are going to do something useful. I get a little bit of wry amusement from the fact that the Queensland "government" (I use that term lightly) can draft some legislation that is potentially so good for dogs (this puppy mill legislation), but get it so wrong for other dogs with their awful breed specific legislation.

    I think that we need to remember that it was the Queensland State government that legislated to allow individual local governments to ban any dog breed that they wanted to ban.

    If I have read it right the only ones you can or will be able to buy from will have to be on the registration list. More government controls. Though this could be a good thing, I don't know but.
    As there are people out there who would rather a mix bred over a pure breed.
    there will never be no cross breds and personally I don't think there is anything wrong with cross breeds themselves just how many of the bastards there is.

    MInd you there are a lot of pure bred registered Breeders who do not care where their puppies go either. I just hope all these laws are followed through and not just something else "just to read"

    I mean if you read Dogs NSW Code of Practice

    http://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/__data/ass...f-practice.pdf

    It is all covered..........But there are still those who don't and even those who know that there are many who don't follow this practice.

    It is one of my bug-bears.......
    Thanks for posting this! I wasn't aware of the NSW Code of Practice (I'm from WA).

    But I'll bet that most dog breeders don't know about the NSW Code of Practice; or if they do, they really don't give a rat's arse about it one way or another (I am not talking about pure bred dog breeders here; I am mainly talking about the BYB's who advertise in Gumtree and the classifieds; then again, as newfsie points out, there are a lot of pure bred breeders who don't care where their puppies get sold to, just so long as they do get sold and paid for).

    I suspect that the NSW Code of Practice will just be another piece of polly waffle that pollies can slap themselves on the back about and say "what jolly fine human beings we are!"

    follow that link to read the draught, I suspect they got a few high school kids to do a project on their ideals then wrote the best ones in as suggestions to become law, it will do nothing for dogs much at all just give rise to a few news paper articles which will give the public a nice warm and fuzzy feeling that something is being done when it is in fact.........not.

    I think is it is right can only be good for the puppies.
    But I still would like to know where could people who have no interest in pure breeds are supposed to get a mix breed.
    No I am not saying that I think puppy mills are the place for this. So please don't think I am thinking of that.
    I think it will still be hard for them to control, there will be accidental litters and people can get them from there I suppose! lol I personally would only get pure bred dogs/pups... but each to their own hey!

    I believe most cross breeds are accidents. Except for those so called designer dogs that are usually the ones bred in puppy mills, you wouldn't be able to earn any decent money from some nondescript bitsa pup. No one in their right mind would've paid a cent more than the vet costs for a dog like my mongrel for example.

    Having less pups and dogs for free would probably be a good thing though...prevent people who can't afford them getting them!
