That this House recognises that dogs are not a retail commodity and should be bought only from licensed breeders; notes that the internet and local news media are used to advertise the sale of puppies; is concerned that these advertisements are unregulated with no controls to identify the breeder, or the source of these animals; and urges the Government to review and strengthen the existing Breeding and Sale of Dogs (Welfare) Act 1999 and to introduce legislation to govern the advertising and breeding of dogs.
