Thread: Yet another rant - People who buy from puppy mills

  1. #1

    Default Yet another rant - People who buy from puppy mills

    I am so flipping ANGRY right now.

    My mums neighbor who I have on Facebook just posted pictures of his puppy he is picking up next week.

    I was crossing my fingers it was an unclipped baby poodle but after the conversation progressed I found out it was a Labradoodle from a well publicised puppy farm.

    This is the farm who BOASTED that they care so well for their 70 dogs that they bring heavily pregnant bitches inside to whelp in clam shell pools. They live on sawdust outside the rest of the time.

    The puppy they are getting is from a purebred minature poodle put to a Lab x Poodle... Marketed as a Labradoodle.


    The thing that got me was they knocked $500 off the price (making the puppy now $1200) because it is SEVERELY undershot and they were told that if the puppy wasn't sold they would keep it and USE IT FOR BREEDING.

    I called my mum and she had already had a rather lengthy chat to him and his attitude is "oh well it's only one puppy, it will have a good home" . "My wife really wants it". and "Well if he makes that much money farming good on him".



    I want to punch something right now! How can people be some freaking STUPID!

    It will sadly just never end.......i see my beginner class or Puppy classes every month and I always ask where did you get your dog? And they still get their expensive puppies from the ever spreading puppy farms.

    We have a lot of Labrador x Poodles and Golden x Poodles coming from Echuca. There must be a huge place over there somewhere

    I'd try and talk him out of it but it seems mum has already done a good job of informing him. He understands exactly where she is coming from... He just doesn't care. He's already talking about buying a second one. *sigh*

    Only yesterday I put up anti-puppy mill posts on Facebook. I guess you really can't fix stupid.

    Thanks for letting me vent, I couldn't do it on FB without starting a neighbor war.

    Yes ....it is just never going to stop, because of people like them. By the time i see all the dogs they are already with the new owners. But there are still so many people who do not realise how these poor breeding dogs live.

    This kinda stuff makes me feel sick....
    Really, we can put a man on the moon but cant stop puppy farmers?

    How hard is it to impose a 10 dog limit on undesexed dogs, ENFORCED by council?

    Drop the ridiculas pitbull regulations and get serious on puppy farmers....simple,makes me ANGRY

    This particular farm actually states they are a puppy farm and they are registered as a business. They breed about 30 litters a year and are proud of the fact they need to breed so often to meet demand. We worked out they have made well over a million dollars from their "venture" since they started up, yet they still can't get the dogs whelping boxes.

    I could tell you some horror stories about the man who runs it but I would get the pants sued off me.

    I agree, drop the pitbull propaganda, move onto the puppy farmers... I mean selling a pup with a deformity cheaper is fine, but having the gall to say if it wasn't sold it would be used for breeding??? It's sickening ot think there are people out there who think of nothing but the money.

    Some people just DONT get it though.

    It doesnt matter that he knows where he is getting it from, he clearly doesnt GET it properly, i.e. what a farm is.

    And thats probably because he doesnt want to get it. Hes found his puppy.
