Hello,Eagle2016,It's very nice to meet you

Background checks shouldn't be required on pet buyers,but rather there should be a requirement that a pet owner be able to demonstrate that they can properly care for their pet.

The reason for this is because background checks would be very expensive,requiring pet stores to have costly computers,and a link to a database.Also,just because someone has a clean record doesn't necessarily have the ability to
care for the animal they are purchasing.A child could buy a dog,but then never feed it or bathe it.A background wouldn't work because the child has a clean record.A background check might also stop a reformed criminal from purchasing a pet.

For these reasons,I don't believe that background checks should be required to purchase a pet.
