At dog auctions, dogs, are sold “as is where is.” Attending an auction clearly defines the priorities of this industry and demonstrates how cruelty can be legal. Eleven “lucky puppies” French Bulldogs and a Pug, were recently rescued from a dog auction in Missouri. These lucky puppies were part of an all bulldog auction where 110 bulldogs were being sold “as is” to the highest bidder. These dogs usually never see the sun or touch grass and do not know what it is like to be loved or have a warm touch from a human.
