Im watching it and I have this lump in my throat. I worked at a petland for four days. I quit because of what I saw there. I learned a lot working those four days and bottom line....DON'T BUY FROM A PET STORE!


Its so easy to do. They charge insane amounts of money for these dogs that are mostly sick or psychologically traumatized. Want a pure bred dog? Go to a breeder or a purebred rescue group. Dont care about breed? SHELTER!!!!!


I work at Petco now. We dont sell dogs. I get a lot of people coming in and asking for puppies. A lot of people just want to "see" puppies. But some are seriously wanting to buy. And after I try to quickly (cuz peoples attention span are short) explain why petstores are horrible places to buy puppies, they ask me if i know a petstore nearby that might have puppies. UGH!


And by the way, I just gave both my guys a big hug.

My boyfriend and I watched that together, and both of us were nearly ill by the end of it.

You know, I've known for a long, long time that pet store puppies were not the way to go. I just didn't realize how bad puppy mills were.

I think that one guy on there was Amish! The one that ran Limestone kennels in Pennsylvania. I could be wrong, but he was dressed like the Amish dress. I was shocked by that.

I read online, and found that Amish puppy mills are VERY common.

I couldn't get over that in Pennsylvania, the computer system automatically set everything to "Satisfactory" if it wasn't marked in by the people that did the kennel inspections for the USDA. :eek:

I wonder how many animals have had to suffer because of a computer glitch.
