Oh Luba

Most definately a puppy mill.With all those dogs.OMG...As you know,NO reputable licenced breeder has THAT many dogs.


Now question.Did you type that as it was in the ad?What I mean is the spelling on some of it.Or were you typing this at 3am?.LMAO....

I have seen ads like that in the Star.I'm trying to figure out where they are located buy the 831.

Morn' Luba.
It could be from a shelter,the Burlington shelter,Animal Aid,run privately, often puts ads with several kinds of dogs and cats in our local paper.But should certainly be investigated...

On the other hand,I just saw the prices posted...it would not be a shelter charging that much.So,you are probably right..it mor than likely is a puppy-mill..

This is definitely a puppymill or a petshop that deals with mills (as they all do). No shelter or rescue is loaded with purebred puppies.

Luba, as you know, there is now a law in Ontario concering puppymills, so this place could and should be reported.

Edited to add, this is place:

Lucky Pets
1215 Bayly, Pickering, ON L1W1L7

Did you ladies get a response from those letters that you sent re: the puppy mill?

I hope you can get them out of business, and these poor dogs find good loving homes.

Great job you guys, keep up the good work!!!!!!:D

No, I didn't call them. Who's going to admit to running a puppy mill?

The OSPCA needs to be informed of this and the place needs to be investigated to see what conditions these animals are being kept in.

Hi LR

I have contacted the OSPCA and am waiting for a reponse.

I'm assuming it may be delayed due to the weekend.


These idiots are advertising all over the place.
