When you consider that many people are not aware of puppy mills, and you think about it, it is easy to see. If someone goes to this place and sees the horrible conditions, they will, understandably feel pity and shock over the poor puppy and many would want to buy the puppy to "rescue" it. Being unaware of this huge, miserable industry out there in mass producing puppies, they just don't know they are supporting something like that. It is easy to see how they would think the place they have seen is an isolated case, and they have done something good for this one puppy, having NO idea they are dooming so many thousands of other puppies.
Just like many people are unaware of human trafficking (I even had a guy in one of my classes argue that there is no such thing, it is all made up and that if people are being exploited they are letting it be done willingly), many more are unaware of the problem of puppy mills.
I think most of the people who do buy from them don't like the conditions, but this guy put on such a hard sell and guilt trip that the potential customers may be pushed into a sale they're not comfortable with. The idea that you have caused contamination of a pup, so that it can no longer go back with its mother (which is what this guy was saying), is probably enough for people to go against their better judgement and buy the pup anyway. Even if this is rediculous. I'm sure most people can think of a time when they were pushed into buying or doing something that they're not comfortable, thanks to a heavy handed sales person.
