Why it’s a bad idea to buy from a foster farm
Foster farms are the main source of foster kids in England and Wales, and have become a target for campaigners as they become a source of welfare problems for children.
The Government is considering a bill to ban them from the market, and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has said the breed has been linked to abuse.
The Royal Society says it’s not concerned about the welfare of foster children because it’s known that most of them are abused in the home.
It says there is a high likelihood that foster parents are abusing their children.
“The breed of dog is bred to be aggressive and aggressive, it’s bred to do that,” said Dr Paul Williams, an animal behaviourist at the University of Oxford.
“It’s not like a dog that’s trained to be a boxer or something.
They have to be bred to growl, growl like they’re going to kill you.”
The RSPCA said it was aware of allegations of abuse in the foster care system, and would continue to investigate any claims.
“The RSCA has an ongoing work programme to address the issues that exist in the care system for the most vulnerable children in England,” a spokesperson said.
And while the breed is a popular choice for many, there are concerns over the welfare that comes with it.
In 2016, a study by the UK’s Department for Work and Pensions found that children in foster care received poorer nutrition and worse health outcomes than children in normal care, and a higher rate of asthma and a shorter life expectancy.
It also found that foster children are more likely to be overweight and obese, and more likely than children who are in normal homes to have behavioural problems.
Last year, the Government commissioned the Royal Veterinary College to look at how foster children in the UK were being treated by the police, the prison service, and other agencies.
Among the recommendations from the study were a review of the laws and policies governing the care of foster families, a call for better training of police and other social workers, and increased awareness of foster dogs.
But the Royal Agricultural Society is a staunch critic of the breed and has called for a ban on it from the UK.
“[They] are dangerous dogs,” the society’s president, Sir Andrew Williams, told the BBC.
“We’ve got a lot of them.
It’s a dangerous breed.”
In April, the RSPC reported a “record” number of dog bites and stabbings in England in 2017, and said that in some areas, it was being hard to determine how many were actually dogs.
It said there was a clear correlation between the number of incidents and the number that were owned by foster parents.
A spokesperson for the RSC told the Associated Press that it was “not possible” to make a definitive comparison between the breed’s behaviour in foster homes and in the community.
However, the Royal Institute of British Veterinary Research said it had observed that there were several breeds that were much more likely not to bite or stifle a person in the wild.
