those who classify people who buy from pet stores as 'ignorant' are pretentious.
why is it that when buying a puppy you must go through an akc approved breader- or else categorized as an animal abuser?
yes puppy mills are awful, and yes many pet stores buy from them...
but not all of them... i'll guarentee that.
and even if they did happen to come from a puppy mill... is it not still a little life that needs love? is it the fault of the innocent puppy in the cage that it was brought into this obscure world? what help is it to refuse to buy that puppy- leaving him in that small cage for months.
tell me, how are you helping?
