  2. Petland? Puppy Mills?

    General Dog Forum
    The closest Pet Land near me is Pet Land, Deerfield Beach. I've been there before and I saw with my own eyes a puppy that had a strange cough and other puppies that didn't look too good. I don't know how to go about getting them shut down/getting the puppies to safer places, good homes, etc. I...

    General Dog Forum
    I want to start by apologizing for closing the last thread. I am new to this site and did not realize I did that.

    I had a horrible time with Keystone Puppies. I got a dog and it is sick all the time and I am pretty sure we will end up losing her. How can someone find a good breeder these days?

  6. Experience with Shelter Puppies?

    Dog Rescue Forum
    We're adopting a poodle mix (possibly a cockapoo) from our local shelter. She's 8 months old (they think), and when we were playing with her in the play-yard she seemed really sweet, and friendly, but still ran around and had fun. When other dogs were barking at her she didn't bark back, but...

    My family and I had been looking for a standard poodle for a while at the Humane Society and the Homeward Bound organization with no luck so I began searching Craigslist for one--I KNOW THIS IN FROWNED APON!

    My parents friend's dog has an intense skin/allergy condition and he is constantly, violently scratching himself. He will rub his face against a carpet until he bleeds and has rubbed his belly and paws raw and hairless. He is in constant discomfort, to the point where he cannot relax to fall...
  10. Potty-training a puppy mill survivor

    Dog Training Forum
    I adopted a 4-year-old female Miniature Pinscher from a shelter last Tuesday. I am pretty sure that she was a breeder at a puppy mill. In the five days that I've had her, she hasn't peed or pooed outside once, even though I've been following all of the rules for a puppy mill dog--walking her...
