Re: Pet store puppy
Welcome to the forum bjm 442.
Reading your post it sounds like you think it is normal for people to buy puppies from pet stores. Is this your first puppy?
Enough said about puppy mills, yes they are horrible, but I think yours was an honest mistake and I hope your pup has a long and healthy life.
I have to say that when I was at college my family wanted another puppy to keep my Dane company while I was out. We answered an advert for a Westie and went a long to choose one. When the man heard that my parents had grand children around he suggested a Sheltie instead, said they had a more reliable temperament around children.
Looking back, I now know what that place was - lots of puppies of many different breeds. We had no idea at the time, out purchase was in ignorance. That puppy lived to be 16, never had any health issues and had the sweetest temperament going. I hope your pup turns out just as well, but next time research a good breeder.
