Bulldog Puppy Mills, part 2

Pet Store Puppies - Responsible Breeders versus Pet Stores - Who comes out on top?: "Every single puppy sold from a pet store came from a puppy mill, or a backyard breeder. How can I make such a blanket statement, tarring them all with the same brush? Simply because there is not one, single responsible breeder out there who would allow one of his or her dogs to be marketed out like regular merchandise to whomever can lay down the cash. Let me repeat that, please. There are no responsible breeders who would sell their dogs to pet stores!

--take heed, bulldog buyers! Bullies are sick enuf as is!

Buyer Beware: Bulldog Puppy Mills Create Unhealthy Dogs

About Dogs - What is a puppy mill?: "A puppy mill is a place that breeds dogs for profit only, without a care to health, temperament or behaviour. Puppy mill puppies are almost always poor in health, and can often be unstable of temperament. It is not unheard of for puppies to be sold as purebred dogs, but are, in reality, mixed breeds that resemble the purebred.
--enough said - never buy from a pet store that uses puppy mills

Owners who buy from pet stores or puppy mills, even backyard breeders often face serious illnesses requiring extensive veterinary care shortly after bringing the dog home. In some cases the dog has long-term and ongoing problems. "
