So this afternoon my husband, Eric, was driving his moped through East Atlanta when he saw a small Poodle dart out in the middle of traffic on Moreland AVE right by I-20, an extremely busy road in Atlanta. Three cars screeched to a halt, barely missing the little, terrified dog. My husband followed him into a parking lot and cornered him into a fenced in area.
We keep leashes in the car for situations just like this, but because Eric was driving the moped, he didn't have away of leashing the dog.
You can see GA's laws and regulations about breeding pets here:
It states "If your animal has more than 1 litter in a twelve month period, you are required to obtain a pet dealer's license." Here are the requirements for the license: http://agr.georgia.gov/animal-protection-faqs.aspx
Imagine the impact at reducing the number of unwanted litters it would have if that law read "If your cat or dog hasAlitter, you are required to obtain a pet dealer's license.
