When California Assembly Bill 241 was originally introduced, it limited breeders to 50 intact dogs, with no age specifications. The bill has now been amended as of July 23 to limit breeders to 50 intact adult dogs. The bill specifies that any owners of dogs over this limit have 30 days following notification to spay, neuter, transfer, or otherwise rid themselves of the excess animals---including euthanasia if necessary.

The new Oregon breeder bill will limit breeders to 50 intact dogs, 2 years of age or older that are kept for the primary purpose of reproduction. A breeder is defined as keeping those dogs for reproduction if they sell more than 3 litters per year. If a person has 10 or more intact dogs, 8 months of age or older, they must meet standards and regulations for care and containment, such as a rule that crates may not be stacked.
