WARNING - hobby breeders beware!

From the Vizsla Walk group on Yahoo:

"Warning from my legislative list -

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is now offering a $5,000 reward/bounty for tips resulting in the arrest and conviction of dog breeders. They have a 1-800 number on their website for anyone to call in a tip.

Apparently people have started posing as puppy buyers

IF someone shows up without and appointment - do not let them on your property for any reason. If they are posing as a puppy buyer ask to see their driver's license and write down the name found on the license. Ask how they got the information that you have puppies for sale. If they do not have a prior appointment with you to  see puppies, ask them to leave immediately.

If you have a camera or a cell phone that takes pictures take her (or his) picture and a picture of the vehicle they are driving, if at all
possible.

REMINDER -   Wayne Pacelle CEO of HSUS is on record saying ALL PUPPY MILLS claim to be HOBBY breeders and all factory farms claim to be family farms...."

Please forward this to any responsible breeders you know. I'd hate to see any good hobby breeders put out of business by this scum.
