    Thank you for your answer's. I just always wondered about pet shop puppies. how come there isnt a law to ban unreg breeder's selling puppies, would that make the ammount of unwanted dog's/puppies decrease or mearly cover up the problem?

    I sooo agree about selling pets in pet shops. They do rely on the impulse "cute" buy and I hate to think of the lives some of these dogs may lead when they grow and reality sets in. Same reason as I hate someone giving a pet as a surprise gift.

    In a perfect world, pet shops would have a list of breeders to be able to point people to, whilst making their money selling the quality supplies, toys, treats etc needed.

    I never said you did...my post wasn't related to yours (must have been sent at almost the same time).

    All I am saying is...registered breeders are not allowed to sell puppies to pet shops and that the puppies in there for sure are from unregistered breeders, BYB...puppy mills etc.

    I know mistakes happen...bitch goes into heat and woopty...she is pregnant. But unless the bitch is later to be used for show and/or breeding with papers...I don't see the reason for keeping her entire to reach her first season...just IMHO.

    Our girl is entire...she is a show dog on very good papers and we have high hopes for her in the show ring. We would never keep her entire if we didn't think she might be a bit special. That is the reason for desexing our boy...he is not show material, but perfect pet material.

    But also I dont think she's the mix I was told she was, she was a nightmare to house train. I was told she would be a laid back not very active dog, she's the complete oppisit (sp).
    And that is one of the other problems...you can never be 100% sure of what you are getting You haven't seen the parents...where the pup grew up, so really, you are buying a completely empty canvas and it is up to you to paint a perfect picture from no information!

    In a perfect world it would be that way...but who is going to police that ban? Unregistered breeders ARE NOT supposed to breed puppies...that is what Dogs NSW is for here in NSW. You become a registered breeder by sitting a test now and only then should you breed. You pay to be a member of this body and pay for the priviledge of being allowed to be a registered breeder and owning a breeders prefix.

    Breeding good quality puppies take time, effort, disappointments, understanding of the breed, commitment and a lot of money. Breeding staffies...you should know that they have genetic diseases like L2-HGA and HC and these diseases must remain gone from the breed. L2-HGA is a devastating disease and responsible breeders will do everything in their power to use healthy dogs/bitches when breeding. BYB's don't care and it wouldn't surprise me if they didn't even know about this condition!!!

    If the laws were there...they could, but it is still allowed to sell puppies through pet shops.

    In NSW they have been working on this for some time - hit the links above that I posted, Clover Moore a NSW MP has been petitioning this for the past 3yrs+ I think. She last bought it up in NSW Parliament in Oct 09, so it is still on current agenda.
