Some good news for Christmas, the minister has signed the commencement order for the Dog Breeding Establishments Act 2010 so hopefully a brighter start for all doggies in Ireland in 2012.
Surprisingly, the minister noted that 'most dog-breeding establishments were well run. However, I am well aware of problems with a small number of establishments.' He still seems unaware of the real problems.
