New York City bans sale of puppies to drunks

Waiting period required for puppy buying in New York

I don’t buy dogs from pet shops and you shouldn’t either.  More than 90% of pet shop puppies come from puppy mills and backyard breeders, and, more often than not, are terribly mistreated.  If you buy one of these cute little pups you are contributing to the practice.  I will admit, however, that from time to time, you hear of something nice being done to protect these poor creatures from the evils of man.  Here is the story:

Pet stores in New York City’s West Village have discovered an unlikely downside of keeping shop in an area particularly dense with bars—drunk puppy buying, in the words of DNA Info. Yes, the pups playing in shop windows are apparently just too adorable for inebriated people to pass up. At least two such shops have banned sales to tipsy customers as a result, for the good of the pooches. “We have to tell them to come back the next day and most of the time they never come back,” says one owner.

Tell us what you think about this law and puppy mills in general.

    I’m surprised. This sound like something California would do, not NY.

    As a supposed nation of animal lovers, the way we treat animals is pitiful. Drunk puppy buying, unbelievable.
