Love Island and Geordie Shore star Sam Gowland has a new addition to his family, Blue Ivy; an adorable Bulldog puppy presumably named after Beyoncé and Jay-Z's first born.

Appearing to have not learnt anything from fellow Love Islanders Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury, and the death of their puppy Mr Chai, Sam bought his new Mini French Bulldog from the same breeder - Unstoppabullz.

Updating fans as to his latest family addition, Sam posted: "My new mini french bulldog blue , New family addition 🐶 so now we’ve got blue ivy @unstoppabullz thanks so much for all the hard work cant recommend use enough 🙏🏻".

Now, according to their website, Unstoopabullz pride themselves on being able to provide customers with exotic and quality English and French Bulldogs and Pugs.

Fans were quick to point out some of the issues with purchasing a dog from a breeder, with one commenting on Sam’s Instagram post: 'instead of a buying a puppy Fuxking save a rescue one!'

Dog breeders are defined as anyone using a dog’s reproduction to make a profit. This suggests that dogs are therefore tradable goods, which encourages people to view pets as impulse purchases that are no different from fashion accessories for example.

Currently, we are in a time of ‘extreme companion animal overpopulation’ which has resulted in more than 6 million animals ending up homeless every year. Around half of these former pets are then euthanised because there aren’t enough proper homes from them.

Despite dog breeding itself not actively considered a crime, this year the government introduced Lucy’s Law which banned all third-party puppy sales in England from 6 April. A campaign called ‘Petfished’ was also introduced to highlight the deceitful tactics pet sells use to trick buyers into thinking they are responsible breeders selling healthy animals.

If you're buying, not adopting, the government has some pretty simple guidelines for you.
