Imported puppies must be healthy and 6 mo old/ New USDA regulation
 
I was wondering if anyone heard about the new import rule?. So no more import puppies from Germany ha😥?? Isn't waiting till 6 months for a pup too much? How are breeders gonna deal with each puppy and their socialization issues? We'll, what ya all think about it?.

I personally don't know very many people that import pups. Most dogs are imported for breeding purposes and green dogs imported for military purposes are older than 6 months.

Thinking this does not apply to people who are importing a pup for themselves. Here is why I think this: "This final rule applies to dogs intended for resale. It does not apply to dogs that are imported for research purposes, veterinary medical treatment, or for personal companions."

new legislation re - moving of dogs between USA and Canada

here's that thread http://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...gislation.html

this is anti breeder -- when the Eastern Bloc takes down its wall , we are making things difficult , putting up barriers .

This will affect the movement of genetics of dogs as things are more local .

The 6 month rule doesn't affect puppies already sold to buyers in the States (which is what this rule is) it just says that people can't import puppies with the intention of reselling them. But the other change in legislation that they must have rabies vaccine (so must be at least 16 weeks) is total bull and will in the foreseeable future stop most breeders from even attempting.

Plus thought u could import from rabies free countries with vaccine rule. Isn't this mainly aimed at China's puppy mills?

Yes, you should be scared -- you should also be brave enough to look into it. If you love dogs, the answer is worth knowing. Research labs mostly use beagles. They typically are born in a lab, raised in a lab, and often die in a lab unless the lab management allows them be released to a rescue once the research is complete. You can learn more about the beagles in labs here: ARME's Beagle Freedom Project

A while back lalachka I think there was a vivisection issue that was put out publicly. Yes this still happens, this is just the last time I remember hearing about it. There were protestors against Huntington life sciences for using beagles in expirements. You can google it if you want to find out more. Vivisection is still rampant.

everything I buy is on that list.
wow. is there not a way to test without animals? these are things I've been buying for years. what alternatives are there? no exaggeration. everything in my apt is tested on animals.

how do they test? where can I read about that? I didn't see it on that site but I skimmed only

ETA this is the part that killed me. beagles are chosen because they're trusting of people. ooookkkkk
