    Puppy farming and scams. Please read and cross post

    This was on British Flyball forum and they have asked it to be crossposted to let as many people know as possible.



    A very high profile TV show wants to drill down on puppy farming. We need new and
    old cases of people who have bought farmed dogs that had lots of problems.
    Medical, behavioural, not growing up into what they were sold as etc etc etc.
    Either bought via retail outlets or ...online sites, meeting up in service
    stations etc. Any puppy scams considered. Please email me if you know of anyone
    who would take part and help expose this dreadful trade. Getting numbers and
    contacts together to send on tomorrow. Please cross post and encourage people
    with first person stories to contact me and tell their stories. Publicity is
    what this needs and people need to be brave and talk on camera.

    My email is:
    beverley@dosgtodaymagazine.co.uk

    Please note e-mail reply should read beverley@dogstodaymagazine.co.uk

    I've never bought a puppy farmed dog but I know someone who did and they spent around £14,000 in vets bills on their pup before losing him at 13 months to hereditary illnesses - a lovely tempered goldie but his Hip and Elbow Displasia was so bad that 3 surgeries, hydrotherapy and several alternative therapies did *nothing* to help him - will see if I can get his owners to contact
