Sometimes it seems the government is not interested in safe, healthy breeding, but in the elimination of the breeding of dogs. I realize that "anti-puppy mill" legislation has been in the news for many years, but the efforts seem to be more coordinated and intense.
Many people want to reduce the supply of puppies to increase the demand for shelter animals. I fully support the adoption of shelter pets, but I do not support forcing people into this option by removing other options they may desire. The other options must include purebred and designer puppies.
