    @GedankPol ah ok sorry for the misunderstanding, but hopefully people will see my comment and join me in writing our congress men about pressuring china into outlawing those practices. I could describe more like the common practicing of luring stray puppies to you only to roast them alive with crushing tongues around their neck to prevent escape. People who could do that and listen to a dogs screaming agony yelps are not human or worthy of life

    So now the only way to get a registered pure breed pup is from a private puppy-mill instead of the licensed breeder in California. smh

    The larger firms that sell from licensed breeders insure the pups are not inbred, healthy, get exercise and have their shots.

    This ban only ads restriction to law abiding sales.

    depends on how one can obtain a license to breed... many do not have any standards... they just want the breeder to be "registered" but they do not require the breeder to know a anything about animal husbandry.

    CA breeding license law states: "All breeders must provide a written disclosure upon the sale of any dog with information such as the breeder’s name and address, the dog’s birth date, breed. sex, color, and vet record, and a signed statement from the breeder that the dog has no known diseases.

    The only stipulation it mentions is that the animal cannot be contained on a wire-floored cage, and the place has to be clean. It mention that the animals must have exercise and socialization, but says nothing about inspections. And since no inspections are mandated by the law, they take the word of the breeder as to the adherence to this code.

    @JTHEM Have no earthly idea - but never fear - it will probably be "good" for us, therefore we need another law/regulation.

    I absolutely LOVE this law. I volunteer as a foster mom and i've lost count of the pure blooded dogs and cats that have come into my life, bought from mills and stores. Poor things didn't ask to be abandoned. I'm behind. 100%

    I do to well, but at the same time if they are buying stick from responsible breeders why stop them. Me personally my dog was a rescue puppy, big something something mix ( atleasy lab) perhaps the smartest, gentlest snuggle bug ever for being 100lbs .

    I agree with in that puppy mills are EVIL! But are we going to continue to accept this punish the people who abide by the law to punish those that don't?

    @1971tennessee these stores are on a list of problems that contribute to something bigger. Some of those people may give animals a wonderful life but a lot of them may abandon or neglect them. Its a small step but I still agree. More people need to be directed to shelters and fostered animals.

    It may be rough on the pet store but I dont think they are going to go under. Hell, maybe they can start taking over shelters to adopt out the dogs! What a win win.

    @bleakoutlook I have a cavalier King Charles spaniel that was abandoned when his owners moved and left him in a closet! Sad! But he is mine now...and spoiled out of his mind!

    Happy thanksgiving!

    I despise puppy mills and wanton animal cruelty, especially towards mans best friend. But it sounds like these guys went to far in banning puppy sales even if the stock is from responsible breeder

    So what happens to the thousands of puppies in pet stores all around the city? They get sent to pounds because they can't be sold and get euthanized because there are too many to house?

    Actually, then the cycle stops.

    Obviously you aren't aware of where the vast majority of these animals come from for pet stores. Most legitimate breeders don't sell to pet stores, they sell to individuals because they want to control where their animals are going and to what type of people. They care about the animals. Pet stores buy from puppy mills where the breeding animals are kept in deplorable conditions.

    Personally, I'm pretty sure we are euthanizing the wrong species.

    Often the only difference between that and what happens now is a buyer is mixed in now. People buy these dogs, and when they turn out to be sick, they drop them at the shelter because they can't pay. Then they are euthanized.

    Let them sell puppies....as long as they are willing to plaster pictures of the horrid conditions in the puppy mills these dogs come from all over their stores and acknowledge they just do t care.

    Sounds great. Lets show people wanting abortions pictures first. Lets show pics of the animals people are eating from life to the nice little packaging they see in the store.

    My daughter worked at a place like that for a little while. the dogs came from puppy mills in rural parts of the country, and many were diseased or had genetic faults like dysplasia, and some were just insane.
    Most of those places don't stay in business more than a few years, if that long.

    Millions of dogs need homes and they're dying in shelters everyday. No one needs to buy a puppy, especially since most puppies that are sold in pet stores come from puppy mills.

    They are doing that in order to try and shut down animal mills. Be they kitten, puppies, as well as other animals. In the case of San Diego it would be puppy mills.

    I also might add that when people purchase pets, whether it be a dog, cat or a bird, it's better to purchase a very young pet at a reputable pet store and/or legal breeder who are knowledgeable in the advice on pet care. It's disgraceful that the San Diego puppy store was put out of business by hypocrites.

    Frankly, I think that the PETA people are a bunch of nasty, dangerous hypocrites, whose tactics are often very contrary to what they supposedly stand for and say. First of all, they've put a lot of pet stores out of business or compromised them greatly. They either can't or refuse to realize that pets are often an extremely important part of people's lives and are so like and so part of the family. Secondly, they've known to physically assault people in the street who they see wearing a suede or leather jacket, shoes or boots, or even something made of real fur. I'm not in favor of killing animals just for their fur and/or leather, nor do I think that puppies should be abused, but pet stores/legal breeders have every right to make a living by selling puppies as pets. PETA has no right to control businesses or assault people in the streets who they notice isn't dressed to THEIR liking.

    They did it in El Paso Texas as well. It does nothing and now you find people selling puppies out of the back of vans or trunks of cars.
    This is just another example of the Libs jumping and accomplishing absolutely nothing.

    Just ban puppies from "puppy farms". This is what happens when politicized idiots start making these kinds of decisions.

    Sounds like the city just wants the profits from puppy sales. If they want animal shelters to sell them then have them buy out the puppy's .

    Puppy mills usually sell over the Internet. If this store can produce receipts from qualified animal breeders, then they are just being targeted and should sue.
