Victoria Blackmore: What are the dog breeding laws in orange county california?
My neighbor is over breeding his german shepard that has hip dysplasia. As soon as he sells one litter he breeds her again. Now he purchased two pitbulls to breed as well. I have called animal control several times but nothing has come of it. The female really seems to be suffering. I would appreciate any advice that you can give.

Unless he neglecting or mistreating his dogs, breeding crap is not against the law...or puppy mills and bybs would not exist...

I have to look it up, but I think Los Angeles was one of the cities looking at putting in a mandatory Spay and Neuter law. I know Las Vegas did. However, there are loopholes. Pay your annual kennel license fee and you are fine.
Unless he is mistreating the dogs, there might not be anything that can be done. You can try calling animal control or your local shelter and see what they say. They will know the local laws.

There are currently no state laws requiring all pet owners to sterilize their animals but some city and other local governments have adopted mandatory spay/neuter ordinances.
Back in February 2008, Los Angeles County signed one of the nation's toughest laws on pet sterilization, requiring most dogs and cats to be spayed or neutered by the time they are 4 months old. The ordinance was aimed at reducing and eventually eliminating the thousands of euthanizations conducted in Los Angeles' animal shelters every year. The ordinance did exempted certain animals, including those that have competed in shows or sporting competitions, guide dogs, animals used by police agencies, and those belonging to professional breeders. The average pet owner, however, was obligated to have his or her dog spayed or neutered by the time it reaches 4 months of age, or as late as 6 months with a letter from a veterinarian. Owners with older unneutered pets and newcomers to the city with animals were also required to comply with the ordinance.
The mandatory spay/neuter laws were started with good intentions, but their execution proves problematic.
