Puppy mills are large-scale commercial dog breeding operations where profit is placed above the well-being of animals. Bred without consideration of genetic quality, this produces generations of dogs with unchecked hereditary defects.
Some puppy mill puppies are sold to pet shops and marketed as young as eight weeks of age. The lineage records of puppy mill dogs are often falsified, and puppy mill dogs are often plagued with health problems.
Sandpoint Doodles does not own a kennel. They do not have a second job. This is their career. Much time and attention is given to the puppies. This is why they are calm, intelligent and healthy dogs. If the owners won’t let you see the facilities or puppies at any time except when you purchase the puppy that should raise a red flag.
