    An undercover investigation yesterday exposed the abhorrent cruelty occurring at some of Britain’s puppy breeding farms.
    Footage showed the dogs in their small pens with little or no access to natural lights. The dogs were seen to be suffering from physical and psychological problems as a result of the environments.

    Politicians and celebrities have expressed outrage at the appalling conditions revealed by the SKY News investigation.

    The three breeding farms involved supply one of the UK’s largest pet stores, Dogs4Us.

    In response to the public outcry the store has made an abrupt u-turn by distancing itself from the breeders. Local councils have allowed the breeders to retain their licences.
