My neighbours are constantly selling puppies, at least 4 cars a day pull up outside our house and a family go in the house and come out with a puppy breaking Covid 19 rules !!, I know that a couple of the other neighbours have contacted RSPCA , I’ve seen them go round and I’ve also seen the police around there, it stops happening for a couple of weeks then they start selling again.

 I strongly suspect they are farm puppies and guessing it’s totally illegal what they’re doing, it’s really started to get on my nerves especially since lockdown.

What else can be done?

    I bought a puppy back in December and a few weeks back out the blue I received a text from the RSPCA stating they had found my number on a phone that had been seized from the place we had visited! Turns out they were selling all sorts of puppies some of which became ill / died! 
    I'd contact the local authority because they should be licensed if they are selling 5 or more litters a year. 
    I doubt they will stop. There is a lot of money to be made and they won't want to hang onto puppies longer than necessary.

    I agree with Fireflyaway - contact the Local Authority.   Your neighbour should have a licence at the least, should be complying with certain standards - and too often pupppies sold from establishments such as you describe are not healthy.   Also - contact with HMRC as they will be interested - and their interest alone may be enough to stop your neighbours in their breeding escapades.

    The council are responsible for  licensing breeders  so contact  them.
    You could also contact Puppylove
