Douglas F. Gansler, Maryland Attorney General and Charm City Puppies: Stop selling puppymill dogs or tell your consumers the truth!

A new law in Maryland came into play on October 1, 2012, HB131. This bill requires all retail stores selling animals to post breeder information on the cages in a place visible to the public. I visited Charm City Puppies in Columbia, MD and was told to leave when I began writing down this "free to know information". Upon researching the breeders, I discovered that many of them have been cited for infractions and that one in particular had over 500 dogs on their grounds at last inventory. This pet shop tells its patrons that they only deal with small, reputable breeders. Yet, they accept delivery of puppies from a semi-truck that comes from Hunte Corporation, a middle man for breeders and pet shops. These lies need to stop and the consumer has the right to know the truth.
