ALL pet shops that sell dogs acquire their animals from puppy mills. It is easy for a store to claim, "We got this dog from a local breeder". This simply means that the "local breeder" is a puppy miller. No responsible/ethical breeder will sell to a pet store. And "local" can mean a region of the country...not just where you live. If your puppy ends up with genetic problems down the line, the pet store will not help you. When you have difficulty with housebreaking, the pet store will not be there to take your call at 10 at night. When your puppy/dog gets runny eyes or is acting strangely, the pet store cannot help you or give reliable advice. The pet store is only concerned about one thing...money. After the sale is completed you are on your own. Occasionally there will be a warrantee. Do not be misled. The warrantee will only cover certain stated items...nothing else!Pet stores do not care about the puppies or about the consumer.
They only care about profit. Pet stores cannot tell you any personal stories about the parents of your puppy, nor can they tell you about the grandparents. You cannot call pet stores to tell them stories about your puppy like its first experience with an obedience command. You cannot bring your puppy to visit its parents nor do pet stores care if you bring a puppy back in for them to see (unless, of course, you're coming back to buy merchandise).The sad news is in the "behind the scenes" life of these pet store dogs. The sad news is in what the customer does not see. EVERY purchase of a pet store puppy condemns that puppy's mother to a life in hell. No justification can be made by thinking that you might be "saving" a puppy. What actually happens is that you have just purchased a female animal's continued misery. These pet store dogs are not whelped in warm kitchens, they are whelped in cages. They live their entire lives in a cage, sometimes in crowded and cramped conditions. These dogs were not brought into the store via a Mercedes, but in TRUCKLOADS... packed-in, just like old furniture and delivered as merchandise. How horrible for a puppy to be ripped from it's mother at 6/7 weeks of age, stuffed in a cage with other puppies and shipped off like chickens. I can only imagine the fear these poor babies must live through.
The maternal instinct is just as strong in dogs as in people and to have a whole litter prematurely ripped from a mother's side can have devastating and permanent emotional effects on both the mother and puppies. With every pet store puppy purchase this practice is perpetuated. The breeders do not care about these dogs, they care about how much the broker is going to pay them. Ask the "rescue" people about the condition of all the dogs they see coming from impulse buyers and puppy millers. Ask the folks who go to auctions on weekends where these dogs are displayed like cattle...some whelping right in front of "buyers". It's ugly and disgusting. Again, my purpose is not to criticize...just to educate about the cold hard reality of just what purchasing a dog from a pet store really means. Rescue individuals get plenty of rescued "pet shop dogs" that people bought and some even saying that they "saved" them from the pet shop.
Please consider Havanese Rescue (HRI) where you will find a Havanese waiting to love you with all it's heart.
