That is so sad for those dogs,

The animals often mixed-breed poodles and other toy breeds are usually sold to bargain-seeking buyers at swap meets or through classified advertising.

If people realized that pets are something that should not be included in the bargain catagory, then this wouldn't be happening as much.

Animal welfare groups advise buyers to avoid purchasing puppies at swap meets and parking lots.Well, duh? People can be so stupid, can't they? "Where'd you get him?" "From a parking lot breeder!":rolleyes:

I would think that anyone buying a puppy in a parking lot is doing it very impulsively. Those poor pups are most likeley going to wind up abandoned or in a shelter. That's IF they survive to begin with !! This is an animal with feelings and needs. A baby. Not a knock off designer bag that you can sell on a street corner. I just don't get people sometimes. How are they so lacking in basic compassion?
