    I'd question their valuations of puppies atb £1300.00 , but this has been going on for years , I used to breed mini schnauzer and I did it in the most ethical way possible , only ever had one sick puppy ,despite it being cleared by a vet it went sick again so I gave the owner her money back she insisted on keeping the puppy .

    There is big money to be earned from pups ,but you need to have the concience of an assassin, I estimate that if I went into full time production I could have earned 6 to 10k a month

    So how do you combat this puppy farming ? , follow the guide lines set by the kennel club ,with pedigrees they will have papers , but the cross breeds will not so they can by pass any sort of formal checks , I'm not saying go for a pedigree as inmho a lot of breeds now have genetic problems , if you ask to see the mother and they can't show her ,then walk away ,don't be seduced by that puppy

    well we in the various rescues have campaigned on this for years. the only solution is a blanket ban on breeding without a licence, compulsory microchipping and dog licences

    There are puppy resellers who have been checked by their local authorities, where do they get their puppy's from ?

    The solution is not quite that black and white ,even licensing breeders will not work IMHO , there will always be those that claim it was an accident ,next doors dog etc ,it would take a combination of education and licensing

    Education does work , if you have ever tried to sell a puppy in December you will find that the "puppy's are not just for Christmas " has worked .

    I rescued an ex-breeder that had come from a puppy mill from Many Tears dog rescue last year. These poor little souls are left in a terrible mental and physical state. My little dog had not been inside a house and when see saw grass for the first time pulled at my heart. She was in a sorry state and hate to think what state she was in before the rescue had given her vet care. I wish people would look closer at where their dogs are coming from.
    Taking on these dogs from the rescues are not for the faint hearted but boy am I glad we did. We have watched her bloom in her new life and although it will always be a bit scary she now loves life.
