A bill will likely be introduced in the next couple weeks that will impose regulations on commercial dog breeders that sell directly to the public. The bill is part of a growing effort to put a stop to puppy mills in North Carolina. Groups, such as the American Kennel Club, and the North Carolina Federation of Dog Owners believe the legislation may affect responsible dog owners in a negative way.
