|Here, a puppy must be 6 weeks before you sell him. People lie about age all the time, though. At Dollar Tree there were people selling "pit bull" (the quotations are because they looked like American bulldogs, to me) puppies and claiming they were 6 weeks. Those puppies weren't six weeks at all. I've seen puppies. I know what a 6 week old puppy should look like. Those puppies were only 3 or 4 weeks old. Their eyes looked like they hadn't even been open that long. And they were selling them. Shame.
The loophole, though, is that in some states, it's perfectly legal to give a puppy away for free at four weeks old. I think this is stupid. Rather you spend money on the puppy or not, if he dies that could be emotional trauma. Especially if you have a young kid.
Also, I agree with the above poster. Be careful about who you call criminals. I was, also, verbally mauled once because of how young Noble and Malik were when we got them. They were, at the most, 5 weeks. At the least, 6 weeks. People (not on Catster, in RL) attacked me for having such young kittens. When I explained to them that they were feral kittens that we rescued whos mother and littermates had died, the look on their face showed that they felt ashamed for lecturing me.
