Requested by: Holmes County Prosecuting Attorney
If dogs under the age of eight weeks old are sold directly to the public, R.C. 955.50(A) does not apply. However, if dogs under the age of eight weeks old are sold for the purpose of being resold or placed into commerce, R.C. 955.50(A) does apply. Whether this statute applies to high volume dog breeders depends on to whom and for what purpose the dogs are sold. Finally, whether there is any payment made is irrelevant to the analysis because it is not in the statute.
