they come from.
You know how when you ask the price of a puppy, the employee will say "Well, let me go call the breeder and see if they ll come down at all?"Then they go into the office? Yeah, they re not calling anyone. They have a minimum price they ll sell the puppy for and will generally quote the customer double that. They go stand in the office for a few minutes
trying to decide how much they can get out of you.
Puppies that have been there for several months without selling, and are starting to lose the cute factor are kept in the back, in cages barely big enough for them to turn around in. They only get to come out of these cages once a day for about ten minutes when the cage is cleaned. These are the puppies sold for $199. By this time, they re 6 or more months old and will have numerous problems--they ve never been properly socialized or handled so they will have tons of behavioral problems. They will also be impossible to housebreak after getting used to defecating in the same place they eat and sleep.
The day I quit was the day I discovered something extremely disturbing....the owner went into his office and opened a locked door. Behind that door was a closet-sized room with rows of cages full of puppies. These were the puppies that were too obviously sick for sale. These puppies were locked away in this hidden room without even a light on.....isolated, in total darkness, in a locked room ALL the time. It was a month before I even knew this room existed!!!
After quitting I went on to become a vet tech at a local veterinary hospital. It was there that I really got to see how bad American Puppy Club is......at least two or three times a day we d have people coming in with sick puppies that they had just bought. APC is constantly selling unhealthy dogs. In the best cases, they had easily treatable kennel cough or worms. But then there were the ones with hip dysplasia....luxating patellas.....the Boston terrier they had charged extra for, telling the new owners it was because the dog was already neutered. He wasn t. He had a condition called cryptoorchid, which
required expensive surgery. And the worst was having to look in the face of the little kids as they were told their 8 week old brand new puppy had to be put to sleep because they had parvo. This is all because American Puppy Club gets their puppies from puppy mills and gets the health problems that go with that.
PLEASE do not shop here. Please do not support the vicious cycle of abuse of puppy mill dogs. The owners will lie through their teeth to make you believe they don t buy from puppy mills, but I watched that truck come in full of puppies, and I saw the kennel names on their paperwork. Each and every one is from a puppy mill.
