A Missouri judge ruled Friday that a proposed measure to more strictly regulate dog-breeding operations in the state will appear as-is on the November ballot. The initiative would limit the number of animals, require regular feeding and veterinary care and restrict breeding to twice per year. Supporters of the measure say it's needed to prevent cruelty to animals, while opponents say the language targeting puppy mills would hurt licensed breeders who follow the rules.
