Pet Stores and Puppy Mills

Posted by Laura Bourhenne on Aug 6, 2009 3:22:42 PM

I have a client from a few years ago who is a very nice woman and is now a friend. She hired me when she got a cocker spaniel/poodle mix from a local pet store. I refuse to call it a breed, because it isn't, it's a mix. I have absolutely no issue with mixed breeds as most of mine have been mixes. What I do have a problem with is people purposely breeding 2 different breeds to make mixes and then selling them for exorbitant amounts of money and calling them "designer" dogs. Especially when there are so many perfectly great mixes, and purebreds I might add, sitting in the shelters being euthanized every day. Sorry for the rant, I'll get back to my story now.
