Britains Puppy Boom: This portion will be focusing on findings of the documentary - the motivations, the caveats, the wider complexions of getting a lockdown puppy. Be it cropped ears, artificial insemination or fertility clinics, theres a lot of mystery around why there has been such an upsurge in puppy purchases. As most fashions, a huge amount is motivated by society and its understanding of wanting 'things', but with that demand comes a much more sinister element. Financial gain, illegal practice and horrible welfare implications have risen to match this same demand and vets are some of those who seen first hand, the fall out as a result. I will be aiming to share that side in as broad terms as possible
