Anyone who is offered puppies for sale under suspicious circumstances is urged to contact South Northamptonshire Council (SNC).
 
The appeal follows reports of a man selling puppies from the back of a car at Towcester Recreation Ground off Islington Road on Wednesday, 3 October 2018.
 
Cllr Dermot Bambridge, SNC’s portfolio holder for environment, said: “No reputable breeder will sell dogs in this fashion.
 
“People should be aware that buying animals from the roadside could be supporting their ill treatment or an unlicensed puppy farm. They might be kept in poor conditions: separated from their mother too early, they could be carrying diseases and it is unlikely they have been neutered.
 
“If anyone saw this incident or has been offered animals for sale in similar circumstances, they should contact us right away.”
 
To report the suspicious sale of animals email details to licensing@southnorthants.gov.uk or call 01327 322278.
