Booth's Corner Pets Supports PUPPY MILLS Please Read!!
These cute and overpriced puppies come from Lancaster County, PA PUPPY MILLS.
Some of them will become sick and die before they are a year old or cost their owners hundreds or thousands in vet bills. Even though they are sold with a "one year health guarantee" does not mean that Booth’s Corner Pets will reimburse for medical bills. They will only give you another puppy. Maybe. Sort of like a muffler shop guarantee. Lots of fine print.
But the mentality behind replacing a puppy with another one only reinforces the idea that dogs and puppies are disposable.
These puppies come with "papers" from bogus organizations called CKC (Continental Kennel Club) and ACA (American Canine Association) that exist only to manipulate the average uneducated and impulsive puppy-buyer who knows that "purebred" dogs come with papers from “something with three letters (AKC).”
The dogs and puppies of legitimate and responsible breeders are registered with the AKC and only the AKC. ACA and CKC are nothing more than worthless registrars for puppy mill dogs and backyard breeders.
If you buy a puppy from Booth’s Corner Pets or any other pet store you are supporting extreme animal cruelty, torture and the slow & painful death of the parents of these puppies.
Responsible breeders DO NOT sell or consign their puppies to pet stores nor do they sell them through brokers or online puppy sites.
Responsible breeders care a great deal about where their puppies go and many will also offer to take back the puppy at any time if the owner is no longer able to care for it.
Responsible breeders are often involved in their breed rescue organization and can direct you to older puppies or adult dogs that are available for adoption if you want a certain breed but not necessarily a young puppy.
Responsible breeders will often require those who purchase puppies to sign agreements that they will have the puppy spayed or neutered within the first year.
Responsible breeders usually breed one or maybe two breeds of dogs and they do it for the love of the breed.
A breeder that claims to get you anything you want or breeds everything and anything that's in demand: Yorkies, Poodles, Yorki-Poos, Shih Tzu, Shih-Poos, Lhasa Apsos, Maltese, Bichons, Chihuahuas, Chi-Chons, Pekingese, Golden Retrievers, Pugs, Beagles, Puggles, etc. are in it for THE MONEY and only THE MONEY.
Responsible breeders consider their adult dogs to be part of their families.
For links to responsible breeders, go to the AKC website.
The AKC is not perfect and I’ve never been a big fan (though I love watching the big dog shows on TV). But in response to the increasing awareness about Puppy Mills and also to receiving their own criticism, the AKC now inspects any breeder who tries to register a high number of litters a year – usually more than seven is a red flag.
