    I'm the same way! I cannot go to shelters without bawling my eyes out and debating whether I can feed and house 30 dogs...

    This is freakin AWESOME. I totally agree with everyone's excitement and points. I'm sure as time passes the law will become clearer and have more teeth to it.
    Whoever thought of this gets brownie points in my book. We need more avenues for these shelter pets to be adopted and help these rescues, too.
    Great news!

    In the meantime, when considering a bulldog puppy, DO YOUR RESEARCH!

    I read the bill. It defines a "large-volume breeder" as a breeder with ONE or more females used for breeding. One dog does not make a "large volume breeder." Don't get me started on HSUS. Local humane societies are awesome, but the national organization is not.




    "Dogs have a way of finding the people who need them and
    filling an emptiness we didn't even know we had."

    One or more AND selling 50 or more puppies off of the breeding females

    But yes the bill could be improved and more clarity to the meaning

    If a commercial breeder is selling more than 50 puppies in a year and that's what the bill states, then yes I think they need regulation on how these dogs are being treated

    I think NJ is the last to do much of anything - ie, here where I live here in NJ stores are still closed on Sundays
    here in PA too, but on Wednesday's its go to meeting day, they close the stores and banks at 5pm, it use to be at noon.
