Grrr.

After watching Today Tonight on several occasions regarding ACA Breeders in Victoria, I am absolutely appalled by them congratulating the puppy mill. If you look at their website, they claim to not breed their own puppies, yet every expose done on them shoes they own over 300 dogs, all for the purpose of being kept pregnant for the extent of their lives. The guy who runs the business claims to be a dog lover, and gets visibly upset when he mentions the dogs will be put down when they can no longer give birth to large litters, yet he is daily adding to the tens of thousands of dogs put down in Australia every year. I am beyond furious at this breeder in particular, as there's always some sort of bad publicity regarding their puppy mill, which they try and use to their advantage. If anyone is searching for a puppy, I can do more than urge you wholeheartedly to go to the RSPCA or another pro-life shelter, and take the time to really understand what breed is right for your lifestyle, rather than buy from a pet shop and support people like ACA. Here endeth my vent.

Puppy Mills make my momma very angry. Everyone that my Momma knows that mentions getting a new dog or pup, gets the "please visit your local shelter" and "how to find a ethical breeder" information.

P.S. I did not come from an ethical breeder but that was before Momma knew the right things to look for and questions to ask. She loves me anyway.

Hi! Sorry it's been so long since I visited, I stopped updating my own site and just got out of the habit. Anyway, I'll have a peruse of yours today, but just thought I'd let you know that mine's been updated too! :)
