    Depressing isn't it -- but hopefully might help deter the puppy farm/backyard breeder trade.

    So upsetting how many people are ignorant to this. The other day at work my Director and a new employee were talking about how her son had purchased his new puppy through Puppy Find, and the new girl said that she had also purchased her dog through an online site. I had to bite my tongue sooo hard to not pipe in that they are supporting puppy farms etc. If I wasn't worried about losing my job I would have told them what I really thought.
