    Education is the key, spread the word! It will help stop these puppy mills. I have also purchased from a pet store, and even worse-- an importer-- but I was not educated. People don't know unless they learn. Don't feel bad at all, but now that you know you can educate others

    Like everyone else I was uneducated about this matter we bought ours from a place that had only puppies and while the place looked clean the puppies did not look happy they were clean but you could tell they needed a forever home and it brought tears to my eyes that I could take Sheldon's sister with us. We later learned that the very people we bought Sheldon from and GiGi (my mother in law's tea cup yorkie) were running a puppy mill. They had over 128 dogs and 28 of those were puppies with other females being pregnant living in deplorable conditions heat ranges from 90 to 105 degree's outside barely any covering dirty water and I am happy to say every one of those dogs including pregnant ones were adopted in less than a month because my husband I were going to adopt another bully only to find out all the dogs had been adopted out I applaud Arkansas in its efforts against this type of thing and these people were made an example of getting jail time!!

    I know buying from pet stores is wrong but I went everyday and checked a pup in aa pet store by my work . Everyday that little pup was sicker and sicker I already had 5 but I bought him to him to their vet they sent us home with antibiotics well I was up all night holding that little 6 pound bulky mix he couldn't breath at all I rushed him back I said fix this pup I dot want my money back I want him to live well sure enough he had pneumonia in his right lung they kept him 5 days then he finally came home to me ,had I not helped I know he would be dead they put them to sleep if they are sick or don't sell. So that's my story of Bobo.
