Glad to see OP has changed their mind as there are plenty of dogs and puppies in pounds and shelters wanting loving homes.
Backyard breeders and Puppy millers only care about one thing...Money and many Registered breeders are no different...I can't understand how people just don't see this. As breeding dogs is not illegal any clown can...the reason pounds and shelters are full.
If people stopped buying dogs from these lowlifes and pet shops I'm sure this would go a long way to solving the problem and don't expect the Government or R$PCA to do anything either. Some people are also responsible for the pounds and shelters being full too...they buy from a backyarder or Registered Breeder then realize they can't handle the dog then dump them.
Ethical Registered Breeders...Code of Ethics...Guarantees...what does this all mean ? The answer is nothing...in other words a load of Crap because if it was true we wouldn't have Dogs with common health problems over and over again and the price going up and up as well...in many cases Registered Breeders are no different to backyard breeders and it's the poor dog and owner that suffers.
Below are two Welfare reports to give you all an idea of what some people and Registered Breeders are like.
Note: these reports are available to anyone on line. Please scroll to Welfare report.
