dog, puppies, puppy, dog breeders, lawful, law-abiding,


While this legislation specifies regulatory requirements for "DEALERS," as called out and defined in H.R. 2840/S.1385 - the Puppy Protection Act, if passed,  could and will be amended to include all dog breeders as a means to impose breeding limits, exercise mandates, limitation on the number of dogs one can own, temperature restrictions dangerous for puppies, and a rescue mandate. All unconstitutional. 

Puppy Protection Act H.R. 2840/S.1385 is strictly animal rights driven legislation designed to harm legal, licensed, kennels simply because of the breeding of dogs works against the animal rights rescue industry.
