Dog's Trust video

https://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=videos

A DOG IS FOR LIFE NOT JUST FOR CHRISTMAS

Edit: ooops the link is not working, but somehow can't delete. A video just come out, with famous British comedians and actors reading the most pathetic and ridiculous excuses people give when abandonning their dogs at the Trust

Re: Dog's Trust video

This morning at Channel Tunnel Pet Check there were 4 vans from Lithuania full of dogs- the stench was diabolical - I only saw 2 puppies, but they looked in a dreadful state. As the guys handling them had gone out- I told the ladies at the desk how upset I was, as she was checking our dog- they said they were so upset too, but as the paperwork is correct there is nothing they can do. They told me that yesterday they had 5 van loads from Bulgaria with dogs in the same state- again with 'correct paperwork'. I spoke to customs' officers at the border post, and they said the dogs papers say 'rescue dogs' and the passports are signed by vets with stamps. All 4 people I spoke too were truly concerned- and believed things were NOT right. She said they will be shampooed and brushed, and sold just in time for Christmas!

What can be done? At the end of the day, if people are STUPID ENOUGH to buy cheap dogs from the wrong people.... PLEASE THINK BEFORE YOU BUY A DOG. I intend to follow this up with the RSPCA and the Dog's Trust- surely they could follow those vans and find out what happens when they get over to the UK.

This morning at Channel Tunnel Pet Check there were 4 vans from Lithuania full of dogs-.
Alarmingly, a new strategy of the battery farmers/Hundemafia is to pose as rescuers.

Having realized that Joe Public (and Hans Ueli Hundeliebhaber as well) might be starting to slowly get the message about the abusive designer dog trade but are still suckers for a good story, some of these despicable dog dealers are changing their marketing tune. Instead of spinning tales of the wonders of 'XYZ-oodles' they are using hard luck stories to melt hearts and open wallets.

The stories about the awful conditions these poor critters have been forced to endure are true. The utter unforgiveable evil is that those who perpetuate this abuse are now using the situation they themselves are responsible for as a marketing ploy. They are making money from the misery they create.

And Joe Public and Hans Ueli Hundeliebhaber think they have done something good in paying these 'rescuers'.

And so the cycle of abuse continues.


Odile you might also want to contact PuppyLove, a UK organization that campaigns against puppy battery farming. (They were involved in the BBC documentary 'The Dog Factory'.) Let them know what you saw.

I can well imagine that any animal-lover would be. And most disappointed at the inability of the authorities to actually do anything about it, even though it is really clear what is going on...
