@antigone said in Basenji puppy:
@debradownsouth In the State of PA they have somehow messed with the Bitches Cycle so they can be bred 2 times a year. These are the Amish who routinely take their aged Mules to the New Holland Livestock Auction and sell them by the pound. ....
I analyzed the Humane Slaughter Act of 1958 .... I am very familiar with what goes on when it comes to the underbelly of the Slaughter business.
Never buy a Basenji from a Breeder in Pennsylvania!
Well, first, some Basenjis' raised around dogs who have 2 heats sometimes have 2. It isn't really an "Amish" thing.
Second, however I feel about slaughtering animals, the reality is that horses, cows, pigs... when old most are slaughtered. When the US tried to close down all horse slaughterhouses, things got much worse for horses. I'd rather have them humanely slaughtered close by than shipped far away. (We rescued a pony who was in bad shape to avoid her being sold "by the pound"... but you cannot save them all.) It's a topic we are not likely to agree on, but as long as slaughter is done as humanely as possible, I have no objections.
Third, I have yet to see one iota of proof that Great Adventures allows horses to be hunted. This has been going around for a decade. If it really happened, there would be proof.
Fourth.. please do not malighn all breeders from any state as being bad. You don't know all the breeders to say none are worth getting a puppy from!
