Never Buy A Puppy Online: Yes, online is great when it comes to shoes or purses, but when you are adding a furry new member to your family it could be a grave mistake. The majority of dogs sold online come from horridly abusive puppy mills, where they are taken from their mothers too early, put in a crate and shipped somewhere via trucking air freight. These puppies have been known to go days without any food or water. And after making an online purchase, many buyers end up with a sick dog, or sometimes no dog at all.
Adopt Your Next Puppy: Please consider adopting your next pet. There are thousands of wonderful loving dogs and puppies waiting for furever homes. Adopt from your local shelter or rescue organization. There are millions of homeless animals looking for someone to give them a loving home. Over 25% of shelter animals are purebreds and shelters and rescues are full of adorable mixed breed dogs commonly known today as “designer dogs.” There are also breed specific rescues for every breed.
