The Zoo Pet Store in Mission Viejo, CA buys its puppies from Lambriar. Lambriar is a Pet Broker or middleman that buy puppy mill pups and mom and pop homes who bred to make extra cash. Lambriar trucks pups each week on their routes to PET STORES throughout the US. Lambriar prints up Pedigree Certificates by Lambriar which is meaningless. The owner is duping you when she says these are high quality dogs. They are not. Most ido not have AKC registration...because it is too cost.y. The pups have CKC registrations which is much cheaper. Be prepared for high vet bills. Sometimes, families don't have pups with problems...but expect deromodex, hip displacia, heart problems, pink eye, cancers, kidney failure....and tears! Rescue a dog or buy a dog directly from a reputable breeder where you see the parents and the breeder requires a spay/neuter contract to avoid people breeding for fun or cash. Breeding should be done for the betterment of the breed. Oprah had a show on puppy mill with Lisa Ling from the View. It was heartbreaking and no one had a dry eye. Oh forgot to tell you that the owner of the Zoo thinks that the Mission Viejo Mall's Pet Store has the sickest animals. Where do they get their dogs. From Lambriar of course.
Pros: Owner bathes and feeds dogs. The dog cages are clean.
Cons: Puppy Mill Puppies, Owner either Misleads consumer or is a complete idiot.
