Ban selling un-registered dogs for profit

This petition had 393 supporters

I believe that the selling of 'back yard' bred dogs for profit should be discontinued as it not only promotes puppy farming, it lowers the dogs quality of life. 

Dogs that are back yard bred are generally not tested for genetic diseases that are typical to the breed, unlike registed dogs who are bred to try and eliminate these issues. 

You often see dogs like King Charles cavaliers mixed with dogs such as pugs , combining both the breeds genetic issues for a 'designer dog' which are generally over priced and are riddled with crippling genetic traits.

I propose that unregistered dogs should not be aloud to be sold for profit and only be given away for free. This I believe will help subside back yard breeding as it would elimonate the people who just do it for money and don't care about the dogs theirselves but see them as $$$. Do the right thing by our dogs and create stronger breeds by helping eliminate genetic diseses!!
