The petition is still there for all to read, it has encouraged people to come forward with their own buyer and visitor complaints to the local authority and that can lead to some changes and improvements for these puppies. There are a large number of complaints. Puppies in the puppy supermarkets are unsocialised miserable little things but if the kennels have been forced to clean up, put water down and get some puppies to the vet that is an improvement in the life of a little helpless creature.
Trying to get the message across to the public never
to buy from such large multiple breed outlets is very difficult. They want a puppy today
and such a place is open and dying to sell to them. If they even spent an hour googling the name in depth, something like the truth would appear. It is clear though, that some people
will buy from them, whatever the welfare groups, behaviour experts and general puppy buying advice says. Hec, they will even come back with two
, I've seen it time after time. The majority of people
will avoid these places once their eyes are opened and I have no qualms at all if petitions and forums hurt the cruel unethical business of the puppy supermarkets.
