1400 hundreds dog kennels in the state of mo.in 2010. after prop B their are 500 dog kennels still standing.We may not all like Dog Breeding!However it is no different than Breeding cattle,horse's hogs,goat,sheep,deer etc.We may not eat dog here in mo.But some country's do eat dog.Meaning dog's are animals..Dog breeder's do not mistreat their dogs that they bought for breeding stock.No Animal breeder mistreat their Animals.If they did they would go broke Because their would be No off spring to sale.We have been so blinded by prop B we can't see what is going on right under our nose.Ck it all out!You will find that the new rules for dog breeders to be in compliance was written by 2 people not 13 as it was suppose to be.These new rules are not good for any animals.Ck it out with the calavry group and mofed.

I wonder how many Animal breeders & their employees have lost their homes or had to apply for government assistance since they lost their job .Not to mention the retale sales sfeed,vaccinations,ETc.Also These Animal inspecters don't work for free.These are Government Jobs. And if the breeders were forced to apply for assistance !That's Government.Our Tax $ Also the Animal Breeders Taxs $..So Really I guess the Animal breeders pay to have their jobs taken away.I know some of the ex dog breeders and they were nice clean kennels.And these people love their dogs. The dog breeders that are still active Really have no rights left.

To answer a previous comment on here, MO Canine Cruelty Prevention Act was suppose to be written by the Ag Committee. Nixon got rid of the comittee long before Prop B. The new regs were written by John Hagler director of MO Ag and Bob Parker with the Missouri Alliance For Animals. Bob Parker is with one of the biggest animal rights groups in the state. Mr Hagler has recently admitted he did not even know there is a vaccine to prevent parvo virus. So it is easy to understand these new regs were written with with one goal in mind to elimnate MO licensed dog breeders. Currently there is less then 400 now in the state. MO Dept of AG is still not letting up, instead of inspecting yearly..they are inspecting every 6 months. The rules regarding space requirements will get tougher by 2016 , this is going to get rid of even more kennels. I know of breeders that have not only lost their jobs but homes as well. Puppy prices are still on the rise, I predict soon the average american family will not be able to afford a purebred puppy . To answer another question , Jason Smith's mother Mary is a breeder. Mary has been a well respected breeder for many years. Mary is known for high quality dogs, and several of her breeding dogs have earned Champion Titles in conformation.

There are already laws in place that are designed to prevent animal abuse. The problem is enforcing the existing laws.
I adore animals too! We have dogs, cats, birds, etc. And I am completely against abuse of any kind. But I am so also against manipulating the public into voting for laws that are really just a special interests in disguise.
Please read up on this bill before voting. Thanks!!!
Thanks for pointing this out. In the definitions section of the bill, item 9 states, "Pet means any domesticated animal normally maintained in or near the household of the owner thereof." The term "near" is not defined, but you can bet your barn it will be, by some activist attorney or judge. This is a loophole big enough for your entire herd. VOTE NO!

Bob Parker was the 8th district congressional candidate from Raymondville. Bob Baker is the Executive Director of the Missouri Alliance for Animal Legislation. He is a registered lobbyist in Jefferson City, where he works to pass laws to restrict animal ownership.

The Calvary group has a lawsuit pending against MO Dept of AG. Breeders are now forced to house all breeds the same. For example I raise Boston Terriers and they do not do well in extreme weather. However with the new regs they must be housed outside at all times except for females with pups. The space requirements with this breed is also diffcult. Bostons do not get along with other dogs. If a breeder was to house them as a group...there would be dead dogs, same thing with English Bulldogs. Either way life will never be the same for MO breeders.

Yes the lawsuit is on behalf of breeders but only to get rid of the regs that are costly, no benefit to the dogs ect. I do agree the breeders that where forced out should be granted $ and so should breeders like myself that have spent $ to comply with the regs. Recently Davis Kennel in Webster Co. was being harressed through the state inspection progress. The judge ruled in favor of the breeder. Not only are breeders now living with these new regs, the inspectors are very inconsistant. They interupt the regs all differently...one will consider it a violation and another will pass it.

I googled dog breeders in the state of mo.suied by the mo. attoney general.WOW !What if the state inspectors could come into our homes and ck our dogs.Pretty much everyone has carpet in their homes.carpet is not inprevous to water so,that would be a vilation.Or if the water bowl got tipped over,vilation.Your dog could not sleep in your bed.Because your bed is not concreat or gravel.Or you don't have a collar on your dog with his name and number on it.Vilation!Oh and how bout your dog licks his foot and cause a sore you take the dog to the vet.you follow the vet's advise on treatment because you want the best for your beloved dog.But you forgot to make a daily log of the days you treated your dog with the meds that your vet percribed.That would be a vilation also.If the state dog inspectors could come in to your home and they could inspect your home like they inspect dog kennels under the same rules we would all be in vilation.Each vilation can cost $1,000.00.These dog breeders that are still standing. are working 24/7 to stay in compliance with the rules and regIt is a sad thing to watch what is going on in AG today.All the small business that are having to shut down.Still payen taxs that they have no control of how they are spent.But they themselves are out of a job!

Looks like you should go ahead and vote yes as it only applies to female dogs and as long as you breed dogs you say are for "hunting" you don't have to comply.
Pay Attention to legislation ! This may change.
