Recently Elizabeth Snead reported that dog lover celebrity Oprah Winfrey broadcast a show dedicated to this topic in April after she discovered the horrors of puppy mills.
Puppy mills are often where that cute doggie in the window came from, one of a litter produced from a mother dog caged her entire life. The amazing thing is that these are legal operations, and as long as the animals are given sufficient food and shelter it is not considered abusive treatment.
Oprah’s dogs have all come from reputable breeders, but in the future she vowed to adopt from a shelter first. Good for you Oprah! Another famous dog lover spreading the truth.
