It all began in July 2004, when Canadian media outlets started talking about a dog who had escaped his cage, run amok in the middle of a downtown Edmonton. The "white dog" incident had occurred when he was one of nine dogs purchased by a private breeder in rural Alberta. According to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, the breeder, who went by the name "Mr. J., " had wanted his new puppy to act like a greyhound.

Instead, the pup attacked its breeder, repeatedly biting his back. As the media reported at the time, the greyhound "left its cage when it was a few weeks old and ran amok in a suburban neighbourhood of a northern Alberta city. " It ran away when his master tried to stop him, the story sd, but then returned after a neighbor drove him back home. After the greyhound attacked its owner, the dogs were quarantined, where they allegedly continued to cause problems. When the breeder went to pick up his dog, he sd he had to fight his way through other dogs and their owners. Mr. J. died of blood poisoning five days later, the CBC reported. " I don't want him to be responsible for the death of an animal or a human being. -Mr. J.'s owner, quoted in a 2004 CBC story.

Mr. J.'s story became part of a national controversy about the safety and regulation of so-called "puppy mills" -- breeding operations where animals are confined in cruel conditions, before being sold to unsuspecting pet stores and breeders across Canada and beyond. In response to the "white dog" scare, the Canadian Kennel Club took the unprecedented step of recommending that every dog purchased in Canada be microchipped.

While the "white dog" incident was not the first time that dogs bred in Alberta and Saskatchewan were being sold out of province, it was the first public incident in which dogs bought from breeders were involved in a fatal attack. The incident also led to revelations about the cruelty suffered by many dogs bred in puppy mills, as well as the lack of public education on the issue. More on the "white dog" dog-scare and other puppy mill controversies:

Canada's puppy mill problem is not isolated.

While there are no official numbers, many believe the problem is much worse in other industrialized countries. According to the Greyhounds of Canada, an organization which educates dog lovers and advocates agnst breeding and abuse of dogs, a recent European Union survey found that 60 percent of all dogs in Western Europe are owned by breeders.

The Canadian Kennel Club estimates that there are as many as 4,000 puppies bred in the province every year.

The Canadian Kennel Club's guidelines on puppy breeding, adopted in the late 1980s, call for breeding dogs that are rsed in "well-designed facilities" where they have adequate space, shelter from inclement weather, and are properly fed and cared for.

Puppy mills are breeding facilities which have large numbers of dogs. One dog may be used for breeding up to 300 litters of puppies per year. Puppy mills generally have high levels of disease and parasites such as kennel cough. Breeding dogs may have untreated urinary tract and eye problems and be kept in poor conditions.

However, it is believed that there are as many as 50,000 puppy mills in the United States alone.

The puppy mill problem in Canada was highlighted recently when two greyhounds being bred at a western Alberta animal ranch were set upon by a pack of dogs. One of the greyhounds was mauled so badly that a veterinarian had to amputate her leg, below the knee.

In another case, a Newfoundland dog named Nix was set upon and bit to death by a pack of three adult dogs.

The two dogs were taken to a veterinary clinic in Calgary by their owners after they were found in the wilderness by provincial conservation officers. One of the owners was not wearing a seatbelt when the car was in a collision with a deer.

All four dogs were put down.

Last week, the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (OSPCA) sd it was investigating the death of three English bulldogs who had been seized from a west end Toronto apartment last month.

OSPCA seized 24 pitbulls and 11 chow chows in May from a home in Rexdale, north of Toronto, after investigating a complnt that they were being kept in atrocious conditions. Some of the dogs were so thin that they appeared to be skeletons, the OSPCA sd.

Last month, the OSPCA sd it was investigating five people for the care of a chow chow puppy that had died in a Toronto foster home.

The animals and their owners were taken to an Ontario SPCA facility in Oshawa after being seized.

The SPCA is also investigating the death of a dog who was taken into emergency care after a dog attack in Vaughan, Ont., on Jan. 1. The dog later died from his injuries.

The SPCA says that, according to its records, more than 900 people have died from dog attacks in Canada in the past 10 years.
