A house without a dog is empty. A family without one is incomplete.
You’ve decided to make a new, four-legged friend, a faithful, heartfelt companion for many years.
Do you know where to find him?
If you're thinking abou buying an allegedly purebred dog from a stranger, there's a huge chance you'll be getting a dog from a puppy mill: it means you will support exploitation of animals for profit. These so-called breeders are nothing more than puppy factories, where dogs are kept in appalling conditions and where money is the only driving force. The animals often have major health problems or disabilities and they only look like purebreds.
Buying a puppy from a licensed breeder makes sense for people who have the time and desire to exhibit them at dog shows.
If what you want is a real friend rather than a good-looking house decoration, the choice is simple: you should adopt a shelter dog.
