A measure under consideration in the Michigan Senate would place new regulations on large-scale breeders in the state. The bill defines large-scale breeders as having more than 15 breeding females and would not allow more than 50 breeding females at a given facility. Breeders would be required to vaccinate and treat puppies for parasites and provide veterinarian-signed health certificates for the animals. The bill would forbid the sale of puppies younger than 8 weeks.
