DOG BREEDER WHO MADE £50,000 BY MIS-SELLING ANIMALS RECEIVES SUSPENDED SENTENCE AFTER SUCCESSFUL PROSECUTION BY VALE OF GLAMORGAN COUNCIL

A dog breeder has received a suspended sentence and a curfew after Cardiff Crown Court heard how she had advertised puppies for sale that she did not have, lied about their genetic make-up and overbred her animals.

Strays like Marge need your support

Marge the Terrier, picked up as a stray with her 6-month-old puppy, came into the care of Hope Rescue and it soon became apparent that she was already pregnant again, another tragic victim of irresponsible breeding. Hope’s welfare team wasn’t surprised when no-one came forward to claim her as dogs like Marge are often abandoned just when they need their owners the most. Thanks to Hope Rescue’s team of volunteers, Marge was able move into the comfort of a foster home, where she gave birth to three healthy pups that are now seven weeks old.
