I can see there is a role (sadly) for places like Many Tears and I'm sure the people who run it long for a day when there isn't.

I might be wading into controversial territory here, but it really gets my goat when breeders use rescues to rehome pups that don't sell, or former breeding dogs who are no longer economically viable to keep. I agree, it's better than being put to sleep, but I would like to see some way of breeders being asked to publish statistics about the number of breeding bitches they keep, the number of litters per year, % unsold puppies and what happens to ex-breeders.

That way, buyers could make their own minds up about whether they wanted to support the trade in puppy farming.

Maybe internet sites that sell puppies should be the ones leading with this and refuse to allow breeders to advertise unless they publish these figures. Recently, there was a case where a couple from Eastern Europe were prosecuted for importing unvaccinated puppies from the continent and the web-based set-up that rhymes with Scumtree put on. great display of hand-wringing and sanctimonious preaching about the importance of doing proper research. The irony is (as I'm sure they know) if people did carry out proper research, nobody would bother with their website smile.gif



It's a good idea but the unscrupulous would just lie.

A lovely young Doberman girl. Not an unusual breed as such, but you don't see too many in general rescues (I don't think unsure.gif )

A Llewellin Setter (which I've never heard of before)

Seeing quite a few Pomeranians in now,odd as they were very seldom seen - and the number of French Bulldogs coming in is shocking!

I am told by French Bulldog rescue that people are buying them for the wrong reason and that they are not being brought up as they should be.

Yup. They are the current 'must have' dog and people don't realise that they can be quite difficult - energetic, headstrong, quite feisty sometimes. And of course there's the health side - many are being dumped on rescue when the owners discover that (surprise, surprise) their flat-faced dog with compromised airways needs surgery that can costs thousands that they don't have.

My friend used to have a couple of French bulldogs, long before they went into mass production. The last one she had (they were all rescues) was about to be put to sleep as they didn't think he could be rehomed (they'd put his brother to sleep the day before). She was not put off and had him for a number of years. The first time I met him, she said 'don't touch him when he greets you'. I didn't, but ended up having a good game with him. He was so gentle taking food from you and even gave me kisses, very gently. But he was food protective and used to go for her grown son's feet. I told her not to leave food down for him, as the feet biting was when her son was going into the kitchen. Once the food wasn't there, the foot biting stopped wub.gif I loved that little chap.
