Misunderstanding. – “Reputable Breeders do not sell through Pet Stores.” Since when was that a law or regulation? These yorkie breeders bred their own puppies. There is nowhere on the Pet Shop’s website that states “home bred” puppies.

I am very familiar with the rescue field. I am former licensed breeder. I know all the codes and conditions to running a proper facility. I do agree that Puppy mills come in all shapes and sizes. I also know what puppy mills look like. I have seen the facility it is no way, shape or form of a puppy mill. These breeders are licensed. They can only be licensed by one department, Department of Agriculture. This means they get inspections. It’s a requirement.

Any present or former breeder knows that CKC recognizes “Designer breeds”. It’s contradictive to call anyone in general a breeder and not know all the circumstances to every recognized registration club.

“Mutts” are mixed with threes and fours of different breeds. A true Designer dog or as some call it Designer Hybrid is the product of careful and thought out breeding of two high quality breeds. It is most definitely NOT an accident. You could always “(Google it)”.

Thankfully, this is definitely NOT a case of a “Puppy mill. Unfortunately, It’s misunderstood. It is clearly

Assumptions of a pet store. It is simply a label.

I mentioned before that I went and asked about the facility out of my own curiosity and they had no problem showing me the facility. It’s nowhere near a puppy mill, well managed. Also if you think that their facility is a “Puppy mill” then you obviously haven’t seen one. You should “(Google it)” also.

Steer Clear – Reputable Breeders do not sell through Pet Stores, period. I have been a breeder and I have worked in breed rescue. Puppy Mills come in all shapes and sizes, but they are still puppy mills.

A puppy mill owner breeds for the money, not for conformity or continuity of a breed. The web site for this pet store says they are "home bred", but offers no confirmation of that. That does not mean it is not a puppy mill. And the sheer volume of animals and diversity of breeds reeks "puppy mill". Plus, reputable breeders do not breed mutts and call them "designer dogs".

Before you purchase a pup from this store, ask to visit the location where the pup was bred and born. Then actually go visit. If they are above board, they won't have a problem providing the information. They started a "song and dance" when I asked.

I've read the health guarantee and buyers agreements for animals from this shop. Trust me, it is not anything like an agreement from a reputable breeder. The agreement does not protect the buyer, it only covers the seller. Proof they are only out to make a dollar is evident in the agreement and the outrageous sum they charge for mix breed puppies. I chose not to purchase from them.

Check out the information on the website for the Humane Society of the US (Google it) for the definition of a puppy mill.

If you want a dog, save a life at the animal shelter or contact a breed rescue. If you have trouble finding a reputable breeder or breed rescue, contact the American Kennel Club for recommendations.

The only way we can put puppy mills out of business is to stop buying puppies from pet stores. Unfortunately, it looks like this is simply another case of a business closing at one location only to surface elsewhere under a different name.

Great customer service and precious pets!!! – I have worked with animals in Rescue and the pet store business for 18 years and I have to say that Linda and Laura did a remarkable job keeping that store afloat as long as they could. The economy is ridiculous right now and I know for a fact they went without paychecks numerous times. I have rarely seen two people who care more about animals and their welfare. Yes, true there was a strain of parvo brought into the store, God only knows how, but the quarantine and conditions set by the department of agriculture and animal control were followed to the letter of the law. This is the only reason they could reopen because the store was parvo free. I know these particular cases spoken of were secluded cases and it absolutely broke their hearts. They store was run professionally and the customer service was wonderful. They are very knowledgable, especially with the puppies. I also know for a fact, because I have seen the books, that the puppies they took in were NOT from puppy mills, but hand selected from local breeders that only breed one litter per year. They were healthy and precious. Linda and Laura did do a number of rescues as well, always making sure the pups were healthy and went to wonderful homes. They were always up front about the rescues and where they came from. These pups were sold at very discounted prices. Unfortunately the store has closed it's doors due to the increase in rent and decline in economy. I spoke with them this week and they are still available to help anyone find a puppy and have some now available. The phone number is the same. As for the negative review below....that review was rude and unfounded. It was ill-written and a disgrace to the English language. Please find something better to do with your time, like actually helping animals and not tearing other people down.

struggling family business – I am sorry to see such a wonderful example of a family business struggling to survive in todays economy. Linda and Laura are working very hard to run a good clean honest business and the recent postings are written by uneducated illiterate idiots. They list no personal experience in buying or selling through the business. Just personal attacks on people. In postings you should list details of a transaction gone wrong and include the other party's attempt at resolution of the problem. My pups were sold through them on consignment and I resent the puppy mill accusations. My pups were born in the house and were raised in the family. My breeding pair live and sleep with my family and are considered members of the family. The non-show quality of the litter are sold as pets with limited registration. I have been warned by my vet that Parvo is rampant this year and last year due to some ignorant people not vaccinating their dogs. The virus is easily spread and it takes a lot of care not to allow people to bring it with them into the pet store. I hope they will continue to be vigilant and have people wash their hands before handling the pups. It is hard to deal with the uneducated people who would be better served by learning rather than blaming the world for their results of their life.

Haynes Pet Centre – I think that these puppies come from puppy mills. I have seen many of these puppies that have one eye that is bigger than the other, the jelly- like stuff coming down from the eyes, and many more unhealthy looking dogs at Haynes. One of the workers told me that a puppy had come a very long way to get here. They seem fairly clean. Also, they are very expensive here.

Best place for small animals, I'm sure! – I'm not so sure about dogs, cats, and fish, etc., but thier hamsters, gerbils, and other small animals are always healthy and usually very friendly. When I went in to get my first hamster, they said I should get a teddy bear hamster, so I did. My whole family loved him and he was healthy for the whole 3 years of his life (which is very old for a hamster!) They are much better than stores like Petco and PetsMart because animals seem to be in worse condition at these larger stores (dwarf hamsters seem to have diabetes a lot).
