london - When selling puppies, the mother of the animals must be present in Britain. With this legislation the British Prime Minister Theresa May wants to take action against the growing trade on the internet in dogs that are often bred under conditions that are terrible for mother and puppy. The step also has to combat the illegal import of puppies and the sale of too young puppies.
May wants the buyer of a dog 'to get a happy and healthy puppy who has not suffered from abuse and cruelty,' British media reported Friday.
Recognized dog breeders will no longer be allowed to sell dogs that they have not bred themselves. And advertisements for the sale of dogs must meet a series of requirements, such as clear information about the origin of the animal.
