Everyone should know that pet stores that sell puppies get their animals from puppy mills and large breeding operations. Educate yourself on pully mills and the horrible conditions these dogs are subjected to, and do not buy a puppy from a pet store - no matter what assurances they give you that the puppies do not come from a breeding operation such a puppy mill. Reputable breeders would not give puppies to pet stores to sell. A great alternative would be to adopt one of the many deserving dogs that are languishing in shelters, or contact a rescue organization. Look on petfinder.com. If pet stores had any sense of morality about them, they would not sell puppies for a huge profit. Instead, they would advocate dog adoption. They don't, though, because they are in it for the money. Money that they make off the miserable conditions these animals are subjected to.
