One of the most popular places to get your puppy or any other animal is the Pet stops. These days almost every corner of the city you will find a pet store. It is very hard to ignore that beautiful puppy waiting for you to take him home. Before you just walk into the pet stops, it is better to know how these pet stops get puppies and a little more information on them.

Have you ever heard of puppy mill?
You would have definitely seen a lot of puppies at the pet stops, but have you ever wondered where these people get the puppies from. Actually, there are many breeding centers where high volume of puppy production takes place and these people sell the puppies to the pet stops. And these pet stops sell them to you. This is known as "Puppy Mills" and this is the most disgusting way of breeding dogs that you would have come across.

The clause: One thing you must be very clear is that not all pet stops have puppies which are bought from the puppy mills. However, lot of research has been done to prove that many shops in the United States get their puppies from the puppy mills and kept for sale.
What are these puppy mills?

Actually, puppy mills are a kind of a farm, which breeds puppies and mostly found in the mid-western apart of the US. These farms grow animals for money, though they are said to breed more of dogs, you can also find other animals there. This may not sound barbarous to you, but just visualize a picture where the dogs are treated badly almost the same as how the cattle are grown. Of course not all of them breed their dogs in this manner, but a majority follows this kind of treatment.

If you feel that this is just normal, then imagine how horrible it would be to see your cute little pet caged and stacked one above the other. Let's make it very clear, this does not happen will all the farms. There will be a number of rows filled with these cages with pets in them. These pets will not have any kind of contact with humans, and they literally get to see humans only when they give water and food in order to survive. Pictures of this horrible sight are available on the net; just have a look, your heart will break for sure.

What's so gruesome about getting a puppy which belongs to a puppy mill?
Getting a puppy that was brought up in puppy mill is absolutely fine; there is no harm at all. You might wonder that after giving so much of explanation of how puppies are treated at the puppy mill, and then why tell you that there is no harm. All the explanation was given only for your knowledge so that you know how these cute little things originated. Sometimes, these dogs are said to have (ESS) which is nothing but Early Stress Syndrome, and might be very agitated and afraid as they grow, so you're training process will take some time and requires a lot of patience. So before you buy your puppy from the pet stops, it is always better that you know where the puppies originated from.
