There seems to be no shortage of lovable, adoptable bassets needing the services of our local rescue.[/b]
True, but these are not "surplus" puppies, they are dogs that were wanted, and then became unwanted. I think the problem is not so much "too many dogs" as too many people who get dogs and then don't want them any more. If this could be stopped somehow, it would probably help, but the main sources of puppies (commercial/backyard breeders) don't care about making sure the buyer is a suitable owner and understands the long-term responsibilities of dog ownership. The rsponsible breeders OTOH, who are the ones who will suffer most under this bill, are the ones contributing the least to the problem because they try to make sure the pups get proper, permanent homes and will take them back if necessary.
