If you want to buy a purebred dog, be sure to do your research on puppy mills and “backyard” breeders.  You do not want to buy a dog from these types of businesses.  Generally, they are only breeding dogs to make money and have little or no concern for you the consumer or the dogs themselves.  The puppy you buy could end up getting sick and dying from the unhealthy conditions of which they are bred in.  Or they could end up being inbred and having all sorts of health problems which could cost you a lot more money.  Also, by buying from a puppy mill, you may be inadvertently supporting an inhumane practice of the mother dog living in squalor for her entire life in a dirty tiny cage.

So how do you tell the difference between a puppy mill and a reputable breeder?  We have come across a great article which will help you learn the difference.  So if you are wanting to buy a purebred dog, PLEASE read this article, How to Recognize a Puppy Mill.  If we do not support irresponsible dog breeding, we will not only put puppy mills and backyard breeders out of business, we will also be making life better for ourselves and the dogs we love.
