I am not sure if this is old news but i read an article in todays Irish mirror that legislation
to outlaw puppy farming is to be introduced by Christmas.The Minister responsible said the efforts of general dog lovers all over the country had helped to speed up the introduction of this legislation.Well done to you all.

Hey thanks for that! This is legislation many of us have fought long and hard for and this is one of the issues I've worked directly with politicians and civil servants on too.

With a Green minister in charge of this area we had expected legislation at last but have been waiting and waiting. This is great to know they have made a statement on it. :rah:

Thats fabulous news! hope it includes the north too! since there are a lot of them down in fermanagh who trade both sides of the borders.

It would be nice if this snowballed into including the whole of the U.K. too!
