Theorists, maybe Cruella had the right idea. Wait, no! I'm not talking about making coats out of cute, defenseless puppies. I meant that they cost a LOT of money. She tells Roger and Anita that they simply can't afford to keeps them all, so they should sell them to her. Well, THAT is a bad idea but maybe she was onto something. Raising and providing for three humans PLUS 101 Dalmatians must cost a LOT of money. How much? Time for us to to get out our calculators and find out!

    Interesting theory but he makes no mention on the cost due to licensing to sell the puppies as in the UK breeders need to register with their local council and pay to receive a licence also having regular checks by welfare officers for the welfare of the animals due to the animal welfare act of 2006 which the breeder must partially fund. With the high pedigree of the dogs the fees will be higher. Just thought I'd mention it as I found the cost of selling animals interesting.

    Well a few things to consider about this. You can buy non-commercial bulk food and supplies like shelters get. As a Rescue/sanctuary they are probably qualified for government loans and assistance and tax write offs and they can probably triple dip into charity to help run the place. Plus if they are running a plantation and can screen and sell the famous pure-bred pups yeah, they could turn a profit off the dalmatians and run a sanctuary/rescue/farm easy with little fuss or muss. They would also probably hire their own vet crew for health and wellness rather than use a local one, and with it being a rescue they could probably get volunteers over employees as charity works look good on the resume.

(There’s no proof it has that power, only dragon energy which repels druns) does Sisu being a water dragon have to do with why Druns are repelled by water? I have so many more but yeah

    consider this: Anita was a gossip article writer, and thus helped make Cruella the "villain" of the baroness. Taking this into account, it puts 101 dalmatians into perspective. Especially when Cruella says herself "Everyone needs a villain." Cruella has a good morality within her, and shows to only take down those that are actually cruel in the new movie. So the question now that I have is, was it Cruella's idea to, much like her original debut, fabricate a bad guy persona to boost the dalmatian plantation's donations and/or sales? She certainly knew how to fabricate a compelling enough story to jump her fashion career from literally nothing to being the top contender for the nation's number one fashion designer.

    I think the biggest mistake in this video is assuming arbitrarily that killing dogs is somehow automatically immoral. "Selling your soul" to turn a hundred dogs into a handful of coats? The only moral issue is the whole part where Cruella would be stealing the dogs, it's no more problematic than the various cows and other animals bred and slaughtered for meat, leather, and other products.

    Even if they can have puppies at 6 months that does not mean they can get pedigrees from a female that young. There are age rules Even in the AKC. FCI are Even better whit their rules. In nkk its max 5 litters per female, female must be over 18 months and younger than 9 years. Must be health checked and if you have 2 litters on the same female that female needs a minimum 12 months before her nexst litter. Etichal breeding and back yard breeding are totally different :)

    7:45 Objection, your Honor. You state "most veterinarians agree..." about drinking untreated water, but if that were really true, then how is it every wild animal survives? They don't have treated water. We have had dogs all our lives, and anytime we take them to the lake or on a hike, they drink the lake water, drink from streams, and have never suffered any ill effects.

    you forgot about heartworm medicine, and annual wormer needed for outdoor only dogs. And it is not recommended to breed dogs before they are 3 years old, and they should have no more than 3 litters in their lifetime. What you are suggesting is a puppy mill, and those are illegal in most countries/states England to be the first to outlaw them.
