A DOG breeder and a printing worker have been arrested for faking documents and 162 puppies confiscated from the breeder’s premises by SEPRONA Nature Protection Branch of the Guardia Civil.
Investigations began when the Official College of Veterinarians of Malaga reported that a number of Nerja vets had spotted puppies with fake health documents.
Various pet shops across the province of Malaga were inspected and more false documents discovered.
The breeder, who bred and sold puppies from Padul in Granada, allegedly asked the printer to create fake documents and treated the puppies himself to reduce vets’ bills.
Documents were made by copying two original health documents signed and stamped by a Granada vet, and were very difficult to identify as only slight variations in colour and texture were noticeable to experienced eyes.
