From a guy DEFENDING the puppy mills: "Like in any kennel, there is a lot of noise and barking dogs."
I don't think dogs should be sentenced to a (shortened) lifetime of living in a cage with hundreds of other dogs all barking at the top of their lungs.
Also: "Are there bad breeders out there? Absolutely," York said. "In the state of Missouri we are actively trying to wipe out the unlicensed breeders."
I disagree that a license equates to safe, healthy, loving conditions for dogs to live in.
My number one recommendation for buying a puppy: Don't buy from a Pet Store!
