    We been saying this on her page since Pup was stolen….

    800 quid for a cross breed 350 for a full ESS … Designer dogs fuel dog theft and if only people stopped paying hundreds for mutts (no matter what stupid name the are given they are mutts) it might help….. not just help Animal Theft but also help slow down BSB.

    You now have ‘dodgy’ pedigrees for mutts to….. The whole thing fuels Dog Thefts and dodgy breeders, of that I remain convinced….. Lucy’s Law might help with the BSB though its aimed at commercial BSB’s and farms but for as long as people pay 1000’s for cross breeds Animal Thefts will rise….

    There are designer cats to …. Those originated as hybrid breeds…. They sell cheaper now a days but they started at 1000’s when they first ‘designed’ them. Sadly for as long as there is a market Animals will be stolen but its the people paying that money who need to think….

    Steam the market slow the flow ….

    Pedigree Mongrels do not exist……lol I been anti some of this for years now …long before Pups fell victim to theft
