Puppy mill- need advice
I met a young girl today with a 6 month old female pit bull. She told me there was a kid in a nearby neighborhood holding up a puppy on a street corner. She approached him, and he said the puppy (which was only 4 weeks old at the time) was for sale for $150. The girl bought him (I don't fault her, she seemed young and niave, and I could tell she loves this dog). The dog is now 6 months old, and seems well fed and happy and loved. But...I asked her if she considered the origins of this puppy.
She then said she ran into the kid a few weeks ago as he walked down the street with a fully grown male pit bull. She recognized him, and asked about the dog. The kid said it was the father of her female, oh and by the way, they had MORE puppies now. I urged her to turn them in, but could tell she would never be able to. The neighborhood is small, and I am planning to drive around it every chance I get. If I see a kid with a puppy, or grown male, I'm planning to pretend to want to buy a puppy.
Question- once I find out where this puppy mill is, what do I do. And, how do I protect myself in case these are dangerous people?
Where am I going and why am I in a handbasket?
