Me and Dex are supporting Dogs Trust's campaign to stop #puppysmuggling (posing with a puppy is harder than expected..)
I'm pleased that Dogs Trust have raised this issue - their investigation into the legal importation of puppies showed shocking welfare conditions. You can read more about the investigation here.
Advice to prospective owners is very clear: people who buy a pet are responsible for knowing where it comes from and, if it is found to have been imported illegally, they will be held responsible for any necessary quarantine and veterinary fees.
Dogs Trust has great advice over on their website to ensure you are buying a puppy responsibly and to stop you from being tricked into buying a smuggle puppy.
