What is puppy smuggling?
Thousands of puppies are being imported illegally into the UK to meet demand.
Little thought is given to where the puppies are bred and the condition of the breeding mothers. These frightened puppies are hidden from view on their long journey and some may carry disease.
They are then often 'passed off' as locally bred family dogs.
Don't be a victim of puppy smugglers.
Alongside other animal welfare campaigners, Naturewatch Foundation supports calls for the minimum age of puppy imports to be raised to 26 weeks.
