A change proposed to the Animal Welfare Act will affect dog breeders who sell via the internet. Breeders who own more than 4 intact bitches would be required to open their breeding facilities, which in many cases is a person’s home, to the public or to USDA inspectors.
Do you think this proposed rule will protect puppy mill dogs? How do you feel about opening your home to strangers who contact you online about a puppy? Remember Bobbie Jo Stinnett?
