The question is, Did You Meet the Mother dog? We live in a world where anything can be rationalized. While I was out running this week, I saw a man walking a puppy.

Most people have heard the words “puppy mill” and have an idea puppy mills are something bad but most do not truly understand what puppy mills are. A puppy mill might have as few as 15 dogs or they could be as large as over 500 dogs. A puppy mill is any dog breeding facility, large or small, where profit is given priority over the health and well-being of the dogs. Mills rarely provide any vet care, leaving parent dogs living with illness and painful chronic conditions for years.
