My daughter is thinking of buying a "puggle". She and her OH have seen an ad for 9 puppies, 8 weeks old. The address is a local traveller site, apparently the father can be seen but the mother was "run over" when the pups were 2 weeks old and they have been hand reared. Pics of mother show her to look at least middle aged with a grey muzzle. I have said steer well clear but would there be cause to ask RSPCA to check as my suspicious mind thinks mother was probably removed so she could be bred from again sooner. Is puppy farming actually illegal or just unethical?
