Possible a hassle of following up with people that imported multiple puppies in that did not follow what they signed for the CDC. Just had people meet them outside of cargo and off the import puppies go, with no restrictions.

I picked up my pup at cargo at the airport and do recall the quarantine period as you cite as part of the paperwork.

I suppose if the "middleman" was receiving the pups at the airport and then selling them to the final owner and did not observe the 30 day quarantine, it could pose a problem. But if the final owner received the dog at the airport and adhered to the 30 day quarantine, it should have been no problem.

Looks about the same as when I dealt with importation of my dog in 2012.

I just imported a dog in June at 10 weeks. Now, under the "Proof of Rabbies" heading it states:
"These requirements apply equally to service animals such as guide dogs for the blind. Puppies must not be vaccinated against rabies before 3 months of age, so the youngest that a puppy can be imported into the United States is 4 months of age."

The 4 months of age thing is definitely new.

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

Animal rights have made great in roads in forcing science to try and come up with other models to test on (like stem cells, etc). But the bottom line, is any new formulation of agriculture products or pharmaceuticals, for the most part, have to be tested on animals at this point in time. Animal rights organizations also have hindered science by using misinformation to play on the emotions of animal lovers. Today beagles are used because there is generations of controlled breeding and data on the beagles that are breed specifically for research. Otherwise, you would not be able to tell what is a genetic based adverse reaction or a product related reaction. Same thing with the mice, rabbits and rats, etc. In that same vein, the animals are treated as humanely as possible because companies want their products to test out safe. If an animal has problems due to stress (be it uncomfortable conditions, mean handling, etc) the animal is not going to do well and the product will not pass. Even weight loss is considered bad. Research is not always pretty and I hope scientist can come up with something besides animals to test on. But I don't have a lot of hope since they can't come up with an energy source that is not a fossil fuel.

BTW, all those products that label themselves as "never tested on animals" are skirting the truth, just like politics. The only way a product can go to market is if it has been tested on animals UNLESS the formulation is exactly the same as a product that has already been tested! Think skin cream and shampoo, for instance.

The times an animal from the pound, for example, might be used is mainly at universities that are demonstrating something maybe one time. I know they also have blood doner dogs that are well cared for. But like the zoo, what kind of life is living in a cage? Not good IMO. Then again, better than an abusive home (of which there are varying degrees).

Those are just some of the facts. If people really want to make a difference they need accurate information for starters and money to support science in finding solutions that don't involve animals.

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.

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