Puppy farming in Ireland has become a real problem. Dogs are being mistreated on these farms and suffer from physical neglect. When people came to see the dogs, they didn’t make a sound and were very frightened. The dogs had matted fur and also other infections. Recently a company has launched a campaign to hopefully put and end to the abuse these dogs are putting up with on these farms. It hopes to get signatures.
- Dog’s Trust is launching a End Puppy Farming campaign which urges people to speak out about animals on illegal farms.
- Vets typically can figure out the age of a dog by looking at their teeth however many of these animals have bad dental disease.
- The Head of Communications for Dog’s Trust Ireland has talked about how the pandemic has been great for a puppy farmer as there was an increased demand for dogs.
“Vets can usually tell a dog’s age by examining its teeth; however, the charity said many of the animals arriving into care has such severe dental disease, that was impossible.”
