The Doggy in the Window Is Not for Sale

Late last year, the L.A. City Council passed an ordinance declaring that pet stores and pet supply stores will no longer be permitted to sell dogs from breeders, only shelter dogs. In Jennifer London takes a look at the reasoning behind the new legislation and reveals that most 'breeder' dogs come from puppy mills, and are in-bred, over-bred, irresponsibly bred, and often sick. London outlines the ways these new laws will help improve the lives of pets and pet owners. In the studio, Madeleine Brand interviews Oscar-nominated "Zero Dark Thirty" screenwriter Mark Boal.
