Re: “Puppy Mayhem

This is an extraordinary step for a city to take and to say will no longer condone illogical people who want to have a puppy store in 2018 and to put it out there enough of Utahs backyard breeders who want to turn a quick dollar time and time again without any responsibilities for the dogs they are pumping out to the population.

If you are a good, reputable breeder then you would take zero offense to this article or the ordinance that was placed, because they are not selling puppies at 6 weeks for "profit".

Rescues are the ones picking up the pieces of the ones you discard, they are the ones spending thousands to repair damage from the owner who bought from you and they let loose or dump at the shelter or just turn loose for someone else to deal with. They are the ones healing the damaged animal that has issues from people who didn't like their furniture destroyed or had a baby coming or who all the sudden, now is allergic, or perhaps their older dog doesn't like the puppy so they dumped the old dog, these are just a few examples of excuses rescuers have to hear every day. Because of someone not taking the time to research or learn how to raise or train an animal.

The rescuers go by facts: medical documentation, records for all immunization, contracts to know where the animals go and if needed be, be returned to a home and not abandoned again, and actual hands-on experience, facts and not just lip service and being trolls hiding behind keyboards.

I highly suggest to contact a vet and ask if you can pay on any rescues account balance as a courtesy, you may be blown away by the amount that is owed.

And one might wonder, how does a dog come from another country, isn't there something about customs and quarantines?
Just curious too, is the owner flying to Ukraine to check where the puppies are coming from, like how she indicates in her story "Hulet explains, she tries to visit with breeders and see the environment the puppy is coming from. "If it's a huge multi-dog establishment, we're not going to buy our puppies there," she says, referencing puppy mills. She also says she won't take in puppies under 12 weeks of age time when their immune systems are still developing."

Kinda sounds a bit off, but...............
