Moral of the story: Never buy pet shop puppies. Every year the humane society tries to discourage holiday shoppers from buying living gifts, this time with footage of puppy mills with a direct link to high-end pet stores selling the puppies. Of course, the pet store employees swear up and down that they don't get puppies from puppy mills.<br><br>
What the story doesn't go into is what happens when pet store puppies outgrow their cuteness without being sold. They're usually killed, dumped, or taken to an animal shelter.<br><br>
Ok, DogMom, your thoughts? Anyone else?
