So I went into a pet shop the other day with a big sign out the front say "WE DO NOT SUPPORT BACKYARD BREEDERS!" I thought wow, Il go in for a look. Walk in and there is about 6 different breeds of puppies being sold.
I pretend to be interested in the 'purebred' boxer and asked the checkout chic for some help. There was a big sign on the glass cage door saying that all dogs are purebreds and come from reputable breeders (well no one reputable I know would sell to a pet store ). I asked her to explain.
Well this is how she put it. The pet shop gets it from a company that are in contact with "heaps" of reputable breeders who dont have enough homes for their pups (WTF??) and they send them to different pet stores.
Well I was absolutely FUMING by the time I got out of there, I did get a picture of the sign (il upload n post later) and I managed to put off a couple who wanted the little boxer....they asked if I was buying her, I said yes, when I left they were outside and I explained that she didnt come from a good breeder and that when the lady got her out for me to hold she was snorting.....YES SNORTING WHEN BREATHING!!! CONTINUOUSLY!!
Anyway here is the place the pet shop gets the pups from...............
PREPARE TO BE ANGERED!!!
