Puppy mills are the worst places, dogs are kept in small cages, suffer from sickness, they are unprotected by the weather and let’s not forget overcrowding. Puppy mills can be best be described as farms that promote animal negligence, abuse, and cruelty. Owners of puppy mills have no consideration for what happens to the breeds. The quality of the breeds, as well as the possible hereditary defects, go unchecked.

A Look at Life Inside a Puppy Mill
A number of dogs that reside in a puppy mill range from 10 to 1,000 breeding dogs. Most puppy mills won’t have licenses or regulations. Therefore, it is hard to tell how many ones actually have. Records are falsified to make the most cash. The saddest part of all this is the health defects puppies suffer later in life. Their reality is a rough one – as shown below.
WARNING! This video is NOT for the faint of heart, and ESPECIALLY not for those who love dogs. NOT MEANT FOR CHILDREN!
Mills maximize their profits by over-breeding female dogs. There is no recovery time between liters which can result in some very harsh treatment.
Puppy mill dogs do not get to experience treats, toys, exercise or basic grooming. Dogs are often kept in cages with wire flooring that injures their paws and legs—and it is not unusual for cages to be stacked up in columns.”-via ASPCA

Neglected dogs happy to be freed

Animal rescuers found 17 neglected dogs from a puppy mill. The dog breeds ranged from poodle mixes, Beabulls, to the Yorkies. These dogs spent 12 hours in the back of a cramped minivan, however, this better than the cramped and deplorable setting of the puppy mill. For most of these dogs, it was their first time in the real world. A world that didn’t include a cage or dark space.
It would be the first time some felt grass or even waged their tails. How would you feel to never wage your tail? To never be able to show any emotion except sadness or exhaustion? We hope these dogs enjoy their new homes and the taste of freedom. Watch the amazing clip below!
