I was snooping online for a friend who is looking to adopt a Yorkie puppy and found this site... I don't beleive I can post the address, but it is like a virtual catalog to pick out a puppy with "Buy it now!" next to the pups pictures. Google Yorkie puppies Florida and it is on the second page. DOZENS AND DOZENS of pups. I am assuming they are just a large puppy broker and buy them from mills. Lord, do they keep them in stockrooms or what? What kind of people would buy a dog from some place like this? Oh, yeah, I know what kind, just venting. It is disgusting though-worse than a pet store in my book. Like getting a dog is no more involved than ordering new shoes from JC Penneys!
I can't find the one you're talking about but there was another that was also in Florida that was actually a link from an ad for chihuhuas right here on Terrificpets that was just as bad as you decribe. Their dogs cost in the thousands and supposedly celebrities buy them. Personally, I don't even buy my shoes that way. But people do and they are willing to pay all that money for a dog from an unknown breeder from parents they can't see so these places will stay in business. The puppies are SO cute but who knows about their health. Poor things!
This is just my own opionion. But since I own a yorkie and know how fragile they are, I don't think people with small children should buy one. They act like they are as big as the rest of the dogs but there have been so many killed by being dropped or breaking their necks from falls or running into something. They go 90mi. an hr. through the house. Just remember the smaller the dog the more health problems. These teacups and all they advertise, I would run don't walk. I have seen ads advertising yorkies as toys. Duh!!! They are a toy breed. Check out the breeder and be very, very careful.
Thanks. I see it now. It looks like they are listing them for breeders which is even worse because they don't seem to be screening the buyer at all. Responsible breeders like to know something about who their babies are going to. I clicked the "buy it now link" and it just added shipping and sales tax. If I put in my credit card would there have been a UPS guy at my door with a puppy tomorrow?? Poor babies being sold like shoes. There's even a warning about how they can get really sick in the first few days from the trip and stuff. No kidding!! Ya think so?????
things like this irritate me for 2 reasons however 1 reason more than the other. if there were not people supporting things such as this, there wouldn't be people doing it. we cannot hate only the business dealers, we have to hate our own human race for being such idiots.
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
