In the age of internet shopping we are seeing more and more puppies that have been bought online and delivered to a happy new owner for a bargain price, however these puppies generally come from puppy farms where they have been bred in poor conditions, mixing with lots of other puppies and have been separated from their mothers far too soon. These conditions drastically increase the risk of deadly diseases due to poor welfare of the bitch and interbreeding. Researched obtained from the kennel club suggests that “as many as one in three may have unknowingly bought from a puppy farm, after sourcing their puppy online, on social media, in pet shops or through free newspaper ads.
