  1. Puppy Farms to the Editor
    Rupert Steele

    I do not believe Australians really believe the scale and the disgusting and cruel manner Puppy Farms are operated by their owners . I started out with no idea except that i heard that they were bad when purchasing a puppy . After 7 months of looking for a puppy and coming into contact with them they black listed me as trouble maker due to the confrontation i had with one at Inverell who indirectly threatened me . I now have a list and to increase it all i do is inquire via email to a dog breeder who is a Puppy Farm you get to know after a while they all have that certain trait . When i am ignored bingo another one . What astounds me is the fact take no one has bothered to expose whom the AAPDP which gives the Puppy Farmers some type of respectability to people who are purchasers of Puppies .

  2. Even arseholes need to make a corrupt and tax dodging living right?
