Please beware of Puppy Mills

Puppy mills

Puppy mills (known as puppy farms in the UK and Australia) are dog breeding operations that are considered to be disreputable and irresponsible. The term originated among critics of such operations. Small-scale, irresponsible dog breeding operations are usually called backyard breeding; the terms are akin but not synonymous.

Reputable breeders raise their animals in humane conditions, provide good socialization and often formal training, and adhere to the breed standard. They are knowledgeable about major health problems associated with their breed, and with the principles of genetics, frequently undertaking specific matings to produce or refine particular desirable characteristics in their dogs. They are also sensitive to the requirements of their breeding adults who may also be breed or performance champions and the puppies they produce. Reputable breeders frequently screen potential customers rigorously, and usually provide a pedigree and health guarantee with their puppies.

Although many responsible breeding operations tend to be small, size alone is not an indication that a particular operation is a puppy mill. Rather, puppy mills are characterized by ignoring duties that are standard among responsible dog breeders. They may keep their dogs in overcrowded, unclean or otherwise inappropriate surroundings. The puppies they produce may be improperly socialized or may suffer from health problems which are often not disclosed to purchasers. Their breeding animals may also suffer, with females sometimes forced to undergo repeated pregnancies too quickly to fully recuperate between them.

Puppy mill operators may misrepresent the breed of dog being sold, and adult puppy mill dogs may exhibit characteristics uncommon to their advertised breed. Unlike the puppies produced by reputable breeders, the vast majority of puppy mill animals are sold to pet stores. Puppy mill operators are frequently accused of being motivated only by profit rather than a commitment to the breed or any empathy for the animals in their care.

Purchasing dogs, especially those claimed to be purebred, from a pet store is strongly discouraged by reputable breeders and animal shelters. While many pet stores claim to purchase dogs from "local breeders" instead of puppy mills, this is often untrue or is a difference in name only, as reputable breeders generally do not sell animals to pet stores. The phrase "local breeder" may also refer to backyard breeders.

i am sure my salt n pepper mini schnauzer was from a puppy mill- he died at 8 years old my female mini schnauzer is 9- she has a little "bladder" infection--but we fell in love with her-she was a gift from my son - we have spend 10,0000-on her 4 operations  for stones-now she is filled again-new vet won't operate -she is okay on antibiotics-be careful when u buy a dog --happy holidays
I am a dog groomer and do my best to educate people about Puppy Mills.  Regardless, I suspect that many of my customers got their dogs from such places because these dogs have overwhelming fear problems and suffer from genetic problems.   I suspect that they don't care where their dogs came from, only that they were cheap.  Of course, there are many many small breeding "operations" which try to make money, not having even a clue about what they are doing.  I talked to a customer just the other day about not breeding her large male to the much smaller female (Shih tzu) indicating that she could easily have pups much too large for her female to birth.  I would just like to mention that we desperately need laws which require a licence for breeding--that licence only being given upon completion of required seminars educating potential breeders on the subject.  There also needs to be a strict limit on the number of breeders allowed in any area.  This wouldn't eliminate the problem would cut it down.  Right now, the situation is completely out of control.
