I agree Newfsie. They all need to be made more accountable for what they do. Aaahh in a perfect world.You should work in breed rescue like i do...I have two pure bred dogs at home that are papered the landed in the pound........More to do with wanting a cute fluffy puppy and on of those "gorgeous bears" not realising all the effort and money involved with owning one, in the newfie case....But there are also hundreds of BC's, ADC's, Kelpies and other pure breeds, I help with working dog rescue. RSPCA locally also gets quite a few pure-breed dogs...Now with micro-chipping you can actually identify where the Breeders are sometimes
I would love to make it law that the breeders info stays with the microchip forever...So that it could be searched and collated if a Breeder was producing excessive puppies that were landing in the pound/shelter/rescue.
Make them responsible for what they breed..i know a few newfie Breeders intentionally keep their info on the microchips and take the dogs back when they are in trouble.........That is responsible Breeding. I am sure there are other Breed breeders who do the same.
If Breeders were responsible for the puppies forever they would be a lot more careful with placing puppies and wouldn't that get rid of puppy farms? Can you imagine all the poundies/rescues that were the responsibility of the puppy farm again. If they had more then a certain amount of dogs landing in the pounds....... fine them........might sort it all out. Chuck the responsibility back at those that Breed, pure bred or not, BYB's, Puppy Farms or ANKC Breeders. The whole Bl**y lot, make them care and be responsible
