Unhappy My Friend

OK, so a friend of mine is a "breeder". I dont agree with her breeding practices, but what can I do? I have copied and pasted a convo we had over msn. She's a BYB but how do I stop it? I played dumb to get answers. She's actually the sister of a friend of mine. I do like her insptie of this. Yes I know she's a puppy mill, but what do I do about it? I do think she takes fairly good care of the dogs. Food/water wise. Her responses are in red and I deleated her name

Total BYB...no, she's a puppymill. Tell her she's doing a disservice to every shelter in the US and that her animals are most likely mental wrecks.

First thing I get is that she's rather ignorant. Can you stop her? Likely no. Can you improve what she's doing by helping to educate her? Likely yes.

A lot of the things she told you are commonly viewed as bad...poor practice. No one in their right mind would volunteer such practices if they themselves were aware that it's "bad practice"...especially to a total stranger, who you posed to be (if I understood you correctly). I would start by going to her place and asking if she'd mind having your opinion and ideas on how to improve her situation. Evaluate everything she does concerning the dogs. It might also be very beneficial to get her one of those "books for dummies" about breeding practices, or an AKC/equivelant breeder's guide.

Working for the "elimination" of these practices, as well as approaching them with the spite of God, will get you absolutely nowhere in your cause.

sounds good in theory to educate her...but you won't do that either. I also have a friend that decided to be a 'breeder'. we both knew the same true breeder, and she decided it was an easy looking way to make money. so she bought a few dogs......and hasn't stopped since. she doesn't do any testing, no vet visits.......seems all she decided to remember from the real breeder is how to do the paperwork. will I stop her, or anybody else? nope...every litter sells like hotcakes, she makes at least $10,000. a year which funds her vacations. it's not illegal.....it just sucks. I tried to at least get her to feed the bitches a better diet.......she got annoyed with my butting in. bottom line......she'll continue exactly as she has. if people are going to continue to buy those puppies, BYBs are never going to end. AND, I'm shocked how quickly those puppies sell....no bargain prices either.

I agree with Debi.. Those people just don't care. All we can do is try to educate people never to buy in such a place, and hope in the end people will stop buying from them and they will have to stop.

But wow, poor bitches. 2 litters a year from 9 months to 7 years...

I would never consider being "friends" with someone of that caliber. What she is doing is disgusting and just plain wrong.

BTW, most puppymillers are very religious. Maybe it is their way of trying to save their soul for the terrible things they are doing.

Her responses seem like a pothead because she is uneducated and ignorant. Proved in her actions and her spelling.

I have a "friend" who is the same way, literally a puppymill. I also have a friend who insisted on breeding her Chihuahuas at least once.

You can try, Jenn, but stopping these people is highly unlikely. They like the money they make on their litters more than they like their dogs.
