Puppy Farm in Wealden

I note in this weeks Sussex Express that the Wealden Council and RSPCA have visited an illegal puppy farm operating in their area.
Could this be Tin Farm in Heathfield again? The sooner these types of operation are closed down the better as they flout the rules and are using dogs to create wealth..........no love of animals involved.

Might be as they have been selling pups in the past.
Wealden Council should get out more and see what's going on in their patch and put a block on some of the illegal farm practices!

puppy farming may be illegal but nothing stops any chav, dick or harry from continually breeding staffs, minture lapdogs and the suchlike at home and selling them on, for an alleged nation of animal lovers we stand by while unregulated breeding goes on, as does abandonment when the animal is no longer wanted, all animal rescue centres are overwhelmed at the moment and brighton city council have animal housed in crates up in burgess hill as they are out of space, still all the time there is a mug who will pay hundreds of pounds for a puppy there will be exploiters of animals to supply demand.
oh and did anyone hear the story about RSPCA trying to rehome tens of thousands of battery hens, unwanted because of the new rules as of tomorrow increasing cage space?

I hope jonnyboy's advice does assist you in sorting your problem out and that it is resolved to your satisfaction. That said what on earth possessed you to purchase a puppy without viewing where the animal came from, its parents and so on? As a very responsible ex-breeder of German Short Haired pointers I have to say, and I do not wish to be rude to you, that I would not have sold a pup to anyone who was willing to buy without seeing me, the kennels and the mother of the pup. That demonstrates the willingness of the person to take on the responsibility of a pup and allows the seller yo judge you the buyer. If nothing else let's hope you misfortune has taught others what not to do when thinking of purchasing a pup.

We bought a puppy from a breeder a couple of months ago - she vetted us as potential owners as much as we vetted her as a breeder. Despite being first-time dog owners, we wouldn't have had it any other way...

I like the fact it's safe enough to leave windows open and shops don't need to put grills up at night.
