What would you do?
First let me say that I am not a breeder, I do not have the knowledge or want to be to one. I don't know how you do it, I would worry to much.
Now, on to my problem. I have avoided a local swap meet even though I really want to go. My reason, each and every week it seems like I see an ad in the paper from some kennel that has at least 4 to 6 different breeds listed for sale at the swap meet, even stating they take credit cards in the ad. I have seen a total of 13 different breeds advertised with this same kennel at different times when they have new litters. Well this week was the last straw.... they now have Chihuahuas for sale. I just can not imagine what all these poor babies, not just the Chi must go through. It does not sound like a kennel to me, not with that many different breeds.
Is there anything I can do to help these animals, or could I be completely wrong? Is it unheard of for a kennel to breed this many different breeds?
I don't want to go rescue these puppies only to keep a puppy mill going, if this is what they are. But at the same time I feel I have to do something. If I am wrong I will admit it and apologize. If I am wrong I would like to know.
Please, if I have upset anyone let me know, that is NOT my intent. I just don't feel I can sit by any longer and know this is going on. My gut tells me this isn't right. Just like all these dog auctions we have around here. It just kills me.
Thank you for any advice and/or input. And again, if I have offended anyone, please let me know. (even in PM if that make you feel more comfortable.
