Hail, Hail Freedonia! Hard at work on those revisions

We do the research so you can watch fireworks ;~)

The June 27 revision of AB 1634 introduced the "just one litter for the Average Joe" concept and required that all puppies from such litters be given away.

The latest [July 3] revision will allow puppies from every "just one litter" to be given away or sold. However,
[a]ny adoption or sale of the offspring of the unaltered dog shall comply with all of the requirements and duties of a breeder, as set forth in Article 1 (commencing with Section 122045) of Chapter 5.

They are referring to California Health and Safety Code Section 122045 - 122110, the Polanco-Lockyer Pet Breeder Warranty Act, which currently applies to those who have "sold, transferred, or given away all or part of three or more litters or 20 or more dogs during the preceding 12 months that were bred and reared on the premises."

Who will enforce all this stuff? No, let me rephrase that:

Who?! will?! enforce?! all?! this?! stuff??!!!!

No wonder my local ACOs think this bill is insane.
