All Breeders / Never, EVER buy
PLEASE don't breed or buy when Millions die! Adopt a pet instead! According to the Humane Society of the United States, approximately 2 dogs are euthanized every second just because nobody wants them. More than 7 million pets are euthanized every year due to pet overpopulation. That's 135, 000 per week or 20, 000 pets euthanized every 24hours, 365 days a year.
WHEN YOU PURCHASE A PET from anyone YOU ARE ADDING TO THE PROBLEM!! Instead contact your local animal shelter or a rescue group in your area and give a pet a second chance at life. The only way to put these puppy mills out of business is NOT to purchase from them.
Even reputable breeders add to the problem. Many pure bred animals are put to sleep each and every day, not ONLY mutts.
And NEVER buy a pet from a pet store. You can be 100% sure that these animals are directly from puppy mills where they are kept in crowed cages and do not receive any socialization. You are asking for a dog with health and behavioral problems when you buy a dog from a pet store. The breeding animals are nothing but money makers for these monsters. They do not receive vet care, and they live their ENTIRE LIVES in a small cage with a wire floor, living in their own filth.
HAVE A HEART AMERICA!!
