You might ask: What could be so bad about the average entrepreneur-minded Pinoy breeding for puppies if there is no shortage of buyers to purchase them and provide them with a home anyway?Let me enumerate several ways how unregulated, unethical breeding can be harmful or detrimental to the welfare of dogs: Unethical breeders do not care or even know anything about breed standards, or about producing puppies that are conformationally and behaviorally sound.
Now, since you are buying a puppy, you will likely end up purchasing it directly or indirectly from a dog breeder.
As a responsible dog owner, you’ll want to do business only with ethical breeders. Here are the qualities that you need to look for: Quite possibly, I will incur the wrath of local breeders and pet store owners with the statements made in this article, but all this has to be said.

This is because there are no required licenses or regulations to govern dog breeding in the Philippines, and our animal welfare law is very poorly enforced.
