    I wish I could take them all, the old Staffy should be curled up on someones lap at his age not thrown away to rot in a kennel.

    Love the EBTX but am not in a position to offer a home sadly.

    Is there a reason these dogs are due to be PTS? or is a policy or West Yorkshire Pound? I'm new to the forum and ignorant of these thngs!

    If dogs in pounds arent found a kennel in a rescue, or a foster home, then they are destroyed after the obligatory 7 days.

    It is sad. I think it stands that about 100+ dogs are PTS everyweek.

    The government needs to do more about the overbreeding of animals, as this is where the problem lies.

    I imagine all they will do though, is merely ban the SBT.

    This makes me so angry and so, so sad. :( Those poor dogs! They could have so much hope ahead of them. A life even. It makes my blood boil.

    One of the reasons dogs need new homes is because the kids beg for a puppy, they walk it everyday, play with it, then get bored by the time it'd 2 or 3. Parents get sick of it never getting walked, this that and another, and they get taken to a kennel. Kids seem to love puppies but aren't so interested when they grow up.

    Classic example is a family that lived next door to us. We got Robbie and their kids got all excited and started begging for a puppy. A week later they got what they wanted. It was there for a year then they got bored. The kids then begged for another puppy, they got one, and a year later they where bored of it and it got moved on. They got the third puppy just before they moved home and I wouldn't be suprised if that went the same way. They were used like a disposable toy for the kids. When I have a dog it's with us till it dies, which is how it should be.

    If there's any rescue homes able to place them i'd be able to pick the Welsh one up?

    Think that's how it works right? I had a dream about the Akita last night, so i really want to help...

    It is a short time... but to to play devils advocate, there are so many, and continuing care is no doubt expensive and a drain on funds, there has to be a cut off point somewhere.

    However saying that, i don't think pts is an acceptable option at the end of that period. Can't say what would be an alternative option otherwise, because giving them away to all and sundry will no doubt create a whole lot more problems and potentially give the dogs much more pain in the long run. They should probably go back to the source of the problem and restrict breeding.

    At least pts is pain free so to speak...

    (i'm not condoning this btw, so don't jump on the bashing bandwagon)

    I understand what you mean, and sort of agree with you.

    Id much rather a dog were humanely euthanised, than for it to spend its life in solitary confinement, with little exercise and stimulation. Thats no life, merely an existance, and sadly the fate of so many dogs.

    Until breeding is more strictly regulated, then nothing will change. There are more dogs than there are loving homes.

    Still thinking about this...

    There should be a scheme (i'm not aware of one), that all breeders subscribe to. Breeding should be regulated to a set number per breed depending on requirements and needs e.g. maximum of 1,000 labs per year, 200 staffies etc etc. Unplanned litters that exceed requirements would need to be mismated, or the breeder looses their breeding rights.

    All breeders have to register and register any pups. All the pups would come with paperwork proof of "legal breeding". Places like epuz, pets4homes etc would only allow the "legal breeders".

    In essence it would be a nationwide stricter KC, yep it wouldn't stop the underground breeding, but it'd be a good starting place.

    Hi,

    Is it only rescue centers that can rescue dogs from the pound?

    How do you go about finding out which dogs are available.

    A friend could possibly take on the EBT but not sure wether it's too late:confused:
