Re: Pet Shops Selling Puppies


It makes me uncomfortable too. We have some pet shops near us that sell pups.

Re: Pet Shops Selling Puppies

Re: Pet Shops Selling Puppies


I am sure that dogs are not allowed to be sold in pet shops. I'm sure the practice was stopped in the 80/90's.

I would make a call to the RSPCA and ask.

Re: Pet Shops Selling Puppies


There are loads around greater london, particularly, greenford, ealing, hanwell.
They do have licences.
I hate them as they just continually breed to sell every breed you can think of, doubt they do health checks but not sure.

Re: Pet Shops Selling Puppies


Pet shops are allowed to sell them if they have a license. I thinks it's shocking in this day and age.
