There has been huge press lately about puppy farms. I don’t want to support these atrocities.
However what I am wondering, are there pet shops which actively DO NOT support puppy farming?
I was in a pet store in Civic yesterday (Pet’s Paradise) as I am considering a dog but having trouble finding the right breed for me. The shop keeper assured me they do not support Puppy Farms, and that their dogs come from ethical breeders etc etc. I really wanted to believe what he was saying, but I don’t know how am I supposed to know if I’m doing the right thing.
Can anyone share their experiences regarding this? Any advice about how we should go about finding the right dog for us? We tried the RSPCA first but they only have really BIG dogs!
(we want a smaller breed, we live in a townhouse with a small but lovely garden. I work from home so am looking for a little friend to hang with). I’ve had dogs before and understand the commitment involved.
