(iWIDK By Janine Mullaney) – This is a survivor from a puppy mill that was busted.
Though he’s frightened and unsure now, his adoptive dad will be sure to change that.
Puppy mills are in operation all over the United States. They breed while putting profit above the well-being of their dogs.
Puppy mills are not concerned about the health of the puppies they produce and this leads to generations of dogs with poor genetic qualities.
The female canines have little to no recovery time in between litters and they are forced to continuously produce new pups. After just a few years, when these female dogs have been exhausted to the point of no further reproduction, they are put down.
Their puppies live on, cooped up in metal cages, that often injure them. They are taken from the rest of their litter early on, when social interaction is of utmost importance. This leads to a lifetime of social issues that may have been prevented if proper developmental stages were considered.
The puppies that are born with defects are not sent to pet stores because they are not considered sellable. These little guys won’t make it out of the puppy mills alive, much like their mothers.
