Puppy Liberation!

By 9 May, 2012 35

ACT Policing is seeking information on the theft of a black Labrador puppy from Pets Paradise at Westfield Woden early last week.

The puppy, kept in an enclosed glass pen within the store, was last seen when staff closed the store for the evening on Tuesday 1 May.

At approximately 12pm on Wednesday 2 May, staff discovered the puppy was missing.

Anyone who may be able to assist with the investigation is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

How can one find a good place to buy a puppy? What’s the line between reputable breeder and a “puppy farm”?

All proper breeders, members of the kennel club and whatnot. Puppy farmers are evil.

You can search for a puppy on this site. Many would be put down unless rescued and then rehomed. Probably worth searching NSW on the site too.

I’m not going to agree with the comments about mongrel dogs with illness etc. I currently have two cocker spaniels bought from Pet’s Paradise, they are extremely happy, healthy and pure bred.

Scare mongering from the old days when these stores were unregulated is not valid today. The dogs in the ACT have to come from breeders that have recognised standards as per ACT regulation.

For every dog you buy in a pet shop, there is a mother suffering in a puppy mill. Same goes for people who think they are “saving” the puppy – no you are helping the chain of supply and demand and the mother will continue being bred to within an inch of her life in a small dirty cage. It’s not about the puppies themselves, it’s about where they came from!

As for the dogs having to come from respectable breeders, NO respectable breeder would put their pups in a pet shop EVER. A proper breeder will make sure they place their pups in good homes and that they are not an impulse purchase on your way back to the car from Coles. They will also usually encourage you to return the dog to them if there’s any reason you can’t keep it, so they can ensure it’s wellbeing and rehome it. Complete opposite to these “privacy” issues mentioned in other posts regarding pet shops.

PLEASE don’t buy any dog – from pet shops OR the internet, unless you can go to the house and meet the parents of your pup.

This is a great site: http://www.wheredopuppiescomefrom.com.au/
