I can't believe people are STILL this stupid.
This is Ellie a tiny female puppy that is the product of an industry that has no morals or shame.
Today Ellie was brought to our shelter by a ve...ry upset lady who had innocently bought her online the day before.
Ellie’s breeders had said she was nine weeks old and that she was fully vaccinated, wormed, de-flead and microchipped but it turned out all to be untrue as Ellie’s new owner was about to find out.
Firstly, it was arranged that the breeder would travel with the pup to Dublin where the two party’s met up. (this is a classic con that leaves the buyer with no way of seeing the parents of the pup and the conditions they are kept in).
When the lady arrived at the meeting point she was met by two men who showed Ellie to her from the car. It was clear to the lady that Ellie was a lot younger than advertised but feeling intimidated and sorry for the tiny pup she went ahead with the purchase.
When Ellie was brought home she had worms coming from her bum, she also had blood in her poo, she could not eat and did not even drink water.
The following morning Ellie’s new owner realised that she had been tricked into buying this underage sick pup and decided for Ellie’s sake to bring her to the DSPCA for help.
Ellie is only 4-5 weeks old and needs a lot of vet care, she has now been surrendered over to the DSPCA and has a new foster family waiting for her today.
This has been a horrific experience for Ellie and her new owner and this is not to mention the other pups that are out there somewhere being bred and sold for pure profit with absolutely no regard for the welfare of the dogs or the emotional cost to the buyer.
It is most likely that the sellers have many other adult dogs that they breed from and no one knows what the living conditions are like for them or their pups.
If you are thinking of getting a new family dog, please do not be conned like this and do not become the unsuspected person who is fueling this industry.
Remember adopt don’t shop!

❌URGENT❌ #BullTerrier s
Early this month we distributed "Love Like Harley" child-friendly Puppy Mill Awareness supplies to teachers at 105 schools (in 33 states) across the country. Ea...ch kit included activity sheets, stickers, bracelets, temporary tattoos, and mini-flyers. We've been receiving WONDERFUL FEEDBACK! Children are proud of their rescue dogs, they are learning to avoid pet stores that sell puppies, and they are educating their parents!
This fun campaign had the ability to educate at least 32,000 children and adults about the pet store/puppy mill connection. Kids are like sponges... they learn and retain information better than most adults. They love animals and they love sharing with their families what they have learned. If you're an educator, stay tuned for our next campaign to educate children.
Your tax-deductible donation of only $30 will allow us to send supplies to 100 elementary school students. Donate here: http://weblink.donorperfect.com/harleys_dream
"I feel like it would be a good idea to share this with all of you. First off: I am a breeder. Or I guess I used to be one. I grew up in Belgium, and we always had German Shepherds. I had no siblings growing up so the dogs meant the world to me. We moved to the States when I was 19 and in my mid twenties I started looking for the right dogs to breed. I went back to Europe and brought two champion GSDs back for breeding. I have bred quite a few dogs over the past 20... years. I was always picky who I would give my dogs to and I know some of them were used for breeding as well. Now I would like to tell you that I just didn't know better back then, or that I had best intentions in mind. But truth is I made a big mistake. I never knew how full shelters are I never even knew that unwanted dogs are being killed. I did however slow down before I knew, my job wouldn't allow me to put as much time into the dogs as I wanted to. Yes I admit, I made good money with breeding, but I also had a real job to attend. It was when I went on facebook and joined a GSD fan page, that someone posted an urgent dog, a stunning purebred GSD, and he was scheduled to be killed. I couldn't believe it! Why? I contacted the person who left the post and she referred me to the shelter. I went the next day. I had to see with my own eyes that a purebred dog ends up in a shelter and that they would kill him for no reason. Fasting forward a little bid, I adopted him. There was just no way I would leave this amazing animal to such a fate. Everything changed that day. Everything. I researched shelters, statistics and came across countless breed specific rescues. Was I living on a different planet this whole time? How did I not know this was happening? Needless to say, my days as a breeder are over. I could never let my dogs have another litter without feeling that I contribute to this. How can anyone keep breeding dogs while the breed that you love so much gets killed every day? I love German Shepherds too much to watch them die. I regret that I didn't see this sooner, and I feel guilty. But I promised my dogs I will make up for it I am donating as much money as I can to rescues, and I try to sponsor every GSD I see that needs out of the shelter."

WTF is wrong with breeders? Disgusting pieces of greedy $hit!

This cage meets the standards of the USDA . The AKC supports commercial breeders who stack these cages one on top of the other like chicken crates. We can not understand why "responsible" breeders, or anyone else, would allow the AKC to support such misery.
I love doing this! 😁
When breeders and pet shops are so pathetic, that they sell puppies and kittens from Facebook profiles, not pages (to keep the costs even lower).., you can use ...your power to report them!

Thank you for reporting and being an amazing animal rescuer. ♥
(Below is an account of a pet shop that keeps puppies and kittens and their mothers and fathers caged all day to be sold off to owners including irresponsible ones. In a country with no laws yet to protect these innocent purebred animals, we are glad that Facebook can stop them to a certain extent)
4 Months old they cling to each other for comfort that is nowhere to be found. Hard concrete and cold steel walls are their entire world, no one is coming for ...them except a kill cart that rolls out 100 just like them DAILY to be murdered mercilessly.. they will die..it’s just a matter of time.
The life of a stray is no life at all and they both realize the end is near. Non related, siblings either dead or still on the streets, barely old enough to be separated, they have given up.
Fosters are their only chance of survival, they are not alone. So many good dogs, beautiful dogs will never be given a chance without somewhere to go - Black plastic bags will separate them in death.

Please help these two and many others that do not stand a chance.

The shelter does not disclose updates to me after the dogs are no longer in their care. Please contact them for any INFORMATION and/or UPDATES. Adoptions have to be made in person. Potential adopters have to bring their other dogs (if any) for a meet and greet. Im only a net-worker therefore, i do not have pulling rights. I name the dogs for personal references, the shelter doesn't know those names so always make sure to ask for a dog by their control number not by their name to avoid confusion.

It is very difficult to see these dogs in peril, but the workers at this shelter are doing everything possible to cooperate with us within the constraints they are under. If the shelter (and the people that work there) are being targeted for negative comments, we will no longer be able to help. Please do not attack this shelter on this page, or on any of our posts.
California recently did and let's make sure New York is next! Sen. Michael Gianari introduced legislation last week that would not allow retail pet stores to se...ll animals that come from puppy mills. “With thousands of good animals in need of homes, there is no need for notorious puppy mills to supply pet stores,” Gianaris said in a statement.
