On June 13, 500 French Bulldog puppies were confiscated from the plane at the Toronto airport upon its arrival from Ukraine. Animals were suffering from dehidration, weakness, vomiting, and 38 of the puppies were dead.
Findings like this one are just a peak of an iceberg of a lucrative puppy market, especially of popular breeds like French Bulldogs.
New owners should always inform themselves of the origin of the puppy and demand to see mother of the litter and the condition she is living in.
