PeTA is a horrible organization. It's a shame information like this doesn't get spread publically like it should. I'll go share this and the
petakillsanimal link around to help it get seen.

I agree. Puppy mills are bad, as are backyard breeders. A TRUE breeder cares about maintaining the breed and breeding only healthy animals
(usually they show the animals or have working lines that actually work)
Tons of people however just breed their "purebred" for money or so that they or their children can see the miracle of life. Over my years of
working I have had 2 different coworkers who ticked me off because they wanted to breed puppies for one or both of the reasons above. Those people
are so stupid and they justify it to themselves by claiming that it's ok because the puppies will go to good homes.
One coworker had a male yorkie, he was supposedly purebred, but of course had no papers. Her best friend had the male's full blooded sister from the
same litter (and she was undersized and fairly sick all the time) and they decided, "oh my gosh! we should totally breed them together so we can have
more money for rent and alcohol!"
So breeding a sick, undersized dog to it's sibling is bad enough, but it gets worse. The dogs were already
inbred by the backyard breeder
the girls had gotten the dogs from. Now they are endangering the life of the female dog by trying to get her pregnant and on top of that they are
breeding further sick and inbred puppies who would then be passed off to potential customers as "purebred" and undoubtedly labled as "healthy"
The other idiot coworker I had a couple years ago had two dogs a male and female of some toy breed, also supposedly purebreds and also.. you guessed
it full blooded siblings. She told me that she was going to breed them together because she wanted her son and daughter to see the puppies be born,
because that is clearly a better option than having them watch a video of puppies being born. She then also explained that the puppies could then be
sold to good homes for a little extra money.
Sadly stupidity abounds and some people really don't care about their animals.
