I purchased a West Highland White Terrier (Westie) from Purebred Breeders a couple years ago and have vowed to tell as many people as I can what I now know, they're a puppy mill or at least affiliated. When I received "Romeo" he had a smell to him that could only have come from a dead animal, there was no mistaking the smell. It took me about two weeks and about 30-40 baths to wash off the smell. As if this all by itself isn't bad enough, I thought "someone actually had to pick him up and send him to me this way". It was at this exact moment that I realized that he could only have come from a puppy mill. It broke my heart to think of the other puppies that were living in this terrible manner. When I picked Romeo up from the Airport (safest traveling possible of course) he seemed terrified of me and trembled all the way to my house. Romeo only stopped trembling once he saw my other dogs and was eager to play with them, he had never spent any time with people and wasn't comfortable around them. I am lucky not to have had any medical issues with Romeo other than allergies which are typical of Westies. FYI Purebred Breeders website design is mimicked on other sites and is really Purebred breeders. Please do your research and only buy from hobby home breeders or professionals. Don't support these terrible people. If the breeder won't allow you to come to their property and see the conditions the puppies and parents of the puppies are living in, it is safe to assume they're a puppy mill of affiliate.
