The International Fund for Animal Welfare has devised a guide to buying a puppy, to ensure people know how to avoid unhealthy, possibly puppy-farmed pets. A PUPs mnemonic is accompanied by an online mock advert for a children’s toy:
Parent – is the puppy with its mum?
Underage – has the puppy reached the legal age for sale?
Papers – are all of the puppy’s papers available and in order?
Sickness – is the puppy healthy and energetic?
