Welcome to my blog

For years I have campaigned against puppy farming, dealers and pet shops, in fact any outlet that is involved in the breeding and selling of puppies by third parties. Why you may ask? Because it is a clandestine trade that lacks public awareness and Governments fail miserably to accept that puppy farming resulting in puppy trafficking is detrimental to animal welfare. Through my thoughts on my blog I will highlight some of the daily happenings from my perspective as a campaigner against the puppy trade.

Puppies imported illegally from Eastern Europe.

The concern for purchasing a puppy from a pet shop, dealer, free ads in newspapers ad online web sites has always been highlighted by Puppy Alert. In recent months there has been the added concern of purchasing a puppy that has been bred in Eastern Europe and exported illegally to the UK without the correct paperwork or vaccine as required under the Pet Passport scheme, due to the UK laxing its quarantine regulations.

More information can be read in this article highlighted by Hampshire Trading Standards where some purchasers have been faced with extra costs above the price of the puppy, including veterinary bills and quarantine for their puppies after purchasing a puppy online.

If you cannot see the puppy with its mother in it's natural surroundings then you should not be purchasing the puppy.  Because you have not met the breeder, you cannot be certain the puppy is healthy, vaccinated with the correct paperwork.  A risk not worth taking when rabies in some countries is still prevalent.
