Online Puppy Mills

I ran across this disturbing article about puppy mills on Huffington Post tonight.

Makes my heart break because I know it is true.

Wish people would quit purchasing pets the way they do their clothes, fads and styles instead of with their heads and hearts. We seem to demand instant gratification in everything nowdays. So sad when it is the life of a wonderful pet.

Kye & Coop - the loves of my life
My little Biewer Yorkies - all 7 of them!
Sadie & Okey - my mini aussies

I want to surround myself with people who are "Cracked" for they are the ones that let the Sun Shine in.

Alaskas retrievers internet scam! Iīm so sad that I didnīt see all the scam repports, customer experiences and complaints about April Fulk and her Alaskas retrievers puppy mill. As many of this people that shared their experiences, I got cheated on by this woman and lost my money. So so sad....she sells inbred dogs, she gets her poor dogs to breed like crazy without giving them any rest...I even saw that some of the dogs have been close to dying!!! So so sad to have given money to some one like this...please if you see this, run! run away as fast as you can from this horrible puppy mill!!!!

It is good to see some exposure that no longer are just pet store and road side puppies from horrible mills. It will be good to see some regulation, hopefully it doesn't accidentally adversely affect true reputable breeders.

I would love to see more articles exsposing puppy mills. When I got Kiba I answered an add in the paper for ACA family raised golden retrievers thinking this was the right way to go about things, like "hey if someone went through the trouble to get papers for the dogs they must care" so we went to get him and pulled into a farm with a well kept house and a big red barn that looked well kept up and thauht what a nice place for a puppy to grow up they had my puppy waiting on there screened in the porch and the mother outside running around, this was an amish farm it didn't hit me that these people put emphasis on me having the money in cash and that they didn't ask where the puppy was going when I went in Kiba was hiding under a chair they also didn't have much to say about the puppy but found out he probably had no socolization everything weirded him out and he was TERRIFIED of men a, few weeks later they got busted for shooting a litter of puppies that weren't selling fast and got there puppy mill shut down it was run by the hisband and aon. Kiba now loves everyone and everything he does tend to back off a bit sometimes with a man speaking in an angry voice though he also has to get more x rays done when hes done growing because the vet thinls he may have joint issues going on and found fluid in his back joints on his last x rays so anyone looking at a pup please ask questions, ask to see the pups living conditions and paperwork on the parents for hip and otber health checks. I will never forgive myself for giving people like that my money but I do love Kiba and am glad to have him. If I ever get a seconed dog I will be adopting.
