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 advertising the sale of puppies; is concerned that these advertisements are unregulated with no controls to identify the breeder, nor 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 bring forward legislative proposals to govern the advertising and breeding of dogs.
