Bob has joined forces with Dogs Trust, the UK’s largest dog welfare charity, to call on the Government to stop the illegal importation of puppies into the UK. With significant changes to pet travel now that we have reached the end of the transition period, Dogs Trust is urging MPs to help stop puppy smuggling by joining their new parliamentary Puppy Smuggling Taskforce.
Every year, thousands of puppies are illegally imported into Great Britain to then be sold via online adverts to unsuspecting dog lovers. The dogs have often been transported thousands of miles across Europe with little water, no food, exercise or toilet breaks. Many suffer significant health problems and/or lifelong behavioural challenges, and some don’t survive, leaving their buyers helpless and heartbroken.
Bob is proud to join the Puppy Smuggling Taskforce and support Dogs Trust in their efforts to raise awareness of and tackle the abhorrent puppy smuggling trade, to help put a stop to puppies needlessly suffering at the hands of criminals.
