Are pet stores a good place to purchase a dog?

The Pet Store Purchase

When people decide that they want to purchase a puppy, they often head straight to the nearest pet store. Unfortunately, most pet stores do not obtain their dogs from reputable breeders. Instead, they obtain them from puppy mills, which churn out large quantities of dogs purely for profit. The problem with this is that many dogs have genetic problems because the puppy mills do not screen for health when breeding. Many of these dogs are also kept in unsanitary and cramped conditions, which are grounds for spreading unwanted illnesses.

I am a responsible breeder because I do the vet checks, OFA etc. and am registered with AKC. I am so glad you are educating the public about backyard breeders and puppy mills.
