Thanks for the informative link; I will add it to some of my puppy farm info elsewhere on the site. :thmbsup:

I think most people are truly unaware these places exist because they are so horrific that any decent person cannot imagine anyone would ever keep animals in such dire circumstances. Yet such places are regularly uncovered in Ireland, the UK, the US, Eastern Europe... and such places routinely supply dogs to brokers selling puppies through websites, pet shops, etc. It is the vilest trade possible. At least the puppies escape to what are most often decent homes, but the parent dogs will spend a lifetime in a cage the size of a dog crate (not even in kennels) and may never know a kind touch from anyone.

So many of these farmed dogs are cavaliers, too, because they are generally a lucrative trade.

Ireland has banned sales of puppies in pet shops and fairs, which is good, but alas that has not kept us from being the puppy farm capital of Europe. :mad:
