Puppy mills breed large quantities of dogs purely for the sake of profit. These dogs are often not checked for health issues or genetic problems when bred. Unfortunately the mills often keep puppies in cramped caged quarters and do not give them any form of socialization. Puppy mills do not typically have sanitary facilities and are often grounds for the spread of canine diseases. Since many pet stores purchase their dogs from puppy mills it is advisable to obtain your dog from a reputable breeder instead.
