Wow. I hate Petland with a passion. I am glad we don't have one in our state, and I hope we never get one. ---Allie the Chihuahua http://www.dogster.com/?41063 ---Mönica the Kitty http://www.catster.com/?57596
Thats aweful, i went into a pet store in the mall the other day. Their cages are 2 ft by 2 ft. Thats so sad. A family got a basset hound out becuase they were considering buying it, and while i was observing it, it looked like it had trouble walking. Could that be becuase it was in such a small cage and never gets to get out to walk? I dunno. It jsut made me mad to see all those dogs in such small cages.
Petland is the biggest company that the Hunte corporation sells puppies to. It's kind of midgrade between a mom n pop pet store and petco/petsmart. They have dogs and cats, small animal supplies.. a small selection of pet feed and such. However, they make a lot of money selling purebred dogs, whereas Petsmart and Petco no longer sell dogs but work through adoption agencies already in place in towns/counties the stores are located in.
I CANNOT wait until I go to CA for Christmas, I wanna go to a mall with a pet shop in it. I think security is going to have to take me away with all the chaos I will make!!! LOL EDIT: That's exactly why I love Petsmart/Petco! ---Allie the Chihuahua http://www.dogster.com/?41063 ---Mönica the Kitty http://www.catster.com/?57596 My LiveJournal: http://www.livejournal.com/users/shadowfawksie/
^^ I was wondring that to, maybe back to the breeder? The probably get sold, being purebreds and all. I saw a young pug once for 1,300 dollars. Isn't that a bit pricey for a pug? I dont think it had any grand championship bloodlines.
The mall nearest to me has very few puppies. But they get their poor pups from puppy barns. When I'm 16, I plan to work there ebcuase it's not supporting them, becuase they give you money for playing witht he pups all day which is supporting the pups. ^_^
Yes, anything there is pricey! And bet you that Pug had ZERO champions in it's bloodline. ---Allie the Chihuahua http://www.dogster.com/?41063 ---Mönica the Kitty http://www.catster.com/?57596 My LiveJournal: http://www.livejournal.com/users/shadowfawksie/
God Almighty, not Pit bulls!!!! ( I know you are all saying that about your favorite breed!) I think there is a Petland at one of our local malls. I have always stayed away from there. I went to an adoption day at one of our plant nurseries. They had dogs there for adoption. I am not in a position to adopt right now, but I thought the kids might like to see some dogs... Well, I ended up blatantly CRYING, tears that wouldn't stay in my eyelids and horrible sobbing noises. I swear there was a dog there that looked as if she were begging me to take her, and I had to say no.... People there good-naturedly LAUGHED at me. I will take your word for it about how awful pet stores and their suppliers are. I will NOT visit Petland. Edited to add-- Adoption day is a good thing,not a pet store, done through legitimate rescues and shelters. I was not upset because of the conditions the dogs were in , just that I could not take them home.
