Some people do not believe that dogs and other live animals can be bought and sold - and people who hold this view will never see eye to eye with people who make their living and run their lives as we do, no matter how humane the standard of care.

I agree with Pet Lady. People do not see the love,
care, time and expense we put into our puppy's.
I also run a pet store in NJ and all breeders.
Sell their pups for a profit some sell from their
homes here in Jersey. I will not buy from a breeder who does not have a license, or has only a handful of dogs. They are flying under the radar and are not inspected and are most likely overbreeding their dogs.
I have purchased from this breeder and have never had a problem with his pups. I have also had to wait for a liter and the pups are always clean, well cared for and up to date on their shots.
I buy directly from my breeders and they are

Anyone that sells their pups to Hunte Corp. runs a puppy mill. I have proof that Charles Feldmann sold my puppy to Hunte Corp. and he was shipped out to a pet store in Portland, ME. You are being fooled by thinking you are being supplied with "elite" puppies that are just occasionally available because feldmann is too busy shipping his puppies off to Hunte. Any breeder who has 67 ADULT dogs on the premises at time of inspection is a puppymiller.
I would have to ask you lady's this...what happens to those 67 adult dogs when they can no longer produce? Yes, I know you make your money on the puppies, but do you care what happens to the Mom's? Have you looked into his facility and the care he may or may not provide?
You lady's both make your living selling puppy mill dogs. Of course you would not see this side because it is your income...it is your bread and butter and without puppy mills, you would have to get a more respectable job.
Pet stores are on their way out. Stop your pet stores and the puppy millers don't have a reason to repeatedly breed their many female dogs to the point they are sick and no longer useful.

I hope Pet Shop Lady reads this...That way she will know exactly where "Charles' Puppies" are bread...or shall we say "milled".Dear Deb, thanks for contacting us, and apologies for the delay in responding. We have USDA inspection reports for Charles Feldmann dating from 12/04-11/08, and are attempting to access his most current reports. All of the reports, except for the 11/08 one are very poor. Some examples:
REPEAT violation: The attending veterinarian has not been to the facility since 10/03.
The owner has placed metal mesh in the flooring of the pens to prevent the dogs digging. There is an accumulation of fecal matter on the flooring.
The water bowls have a greenish growth and chewed edges.
REPEAT violation: There is a buildup of oils and dirt on the interior walls of the whelping building.
4/05 - There is a Chesapeake Bay Retriever that is walking with a hump backed gait.
REPEAT violation: There is an accumulation of fecal waste and hair in and around the pens.
REPEAT violation: There are clawed and scratched areas that cannot be properly cleaned.
REPEAT violation: The interior surfaces of all buildings have oils and debris caked on the walls. Affects 65 adults and 75 puppies.
REPEAT violation: The wire mesh in the floors of the pens and the wire of the pens has hair accumulated on it.
REPEAT violation: The waste disposal system on the west side of the whelping building is allowing the waste to collect on the ground.
REPEAT violation: There is a greenish growth in the water bowls.
REPEAT violation: There is an accumulation of dirt and debris on the floors of the whelping house
REPEAT violation: There is a fly control problem at the facility. Owner is using fly strips, must take a more aggressive approach.
REPEAT violation: There are sharp points on the wire of the southwest pen and the north whelping building.
REPEAT violation: The interior surfaces of the whelping building have dirt/debris on the walls.
The new building on the west side of facility contains Terriers and Boxer puppy. The floor on both sides is bouncing when canines walk, need to brace floor.
18 outdoor pens do not have bedding in the dog houses and the ambient temperature today was 45 degrees. Affects 50 canines.
There are 3 pens that have only one dog house for 3-5 canines in each pen. Need to provide enough houses for all dogs.
There are 2 buildings with an over abundance of flies present inside. Affects 50 canines.
No non-compliance items identified at this inspection. Inventory: 79 adults, 18 puppies.
Feldmann has probably received various warnings along the way to clean up his act,

I have personally been to Chuck Feldmann's facility, and I would definately without a doubt classify it as a puppy mill. Appalling conditions, some smaller breeds like JRT's stacked in wire mesh crates on tables just barely big enough to turn around in, puppies born outside left to die if mother didn't take them into the doghouse, etc. Plus his whole attitude is "business", there is no love of animals in that man. He's just out to make money, and that's it.

Thank you so much Pupppy Lover! I have waited years for someone to confirm what I have already known in my heart. It is people like you that make a difference and I am so grateful for your post!

was it american breeders???? I purchased from them a golden ret??????????

I'm a veterinarian in NY, I can guarantee that at least 99% of puppies from any puppy store are from "puppy mills". And we see it all, pneumonia, orthopedic problems, parvo....you name it, we see it from "Puppy stores".
"Puppy Stores" are the absolute worst place to get a dog. You can not like dogs and own a puppy store, you should only like money. The best is how much they lie, always telling ignorant shoppers that their puppies are from "reputable breeders". There is no "reputable breeder"...anywhere....th at would sell their puppy to a "puppy store".

We feel we avenged at least one dog's life from Feldmann of Missouri fame...rescued a golden doodle at 12 wks. Long story, but she was in a storefront window for sale with most of a litter and got too big...cat rescue org. got her and her brother. We rescued from the rescue org...drove 5 hours in the rain to get her. Mills have to be stopped--never buy a dog from a store. All dogs deserve a healthy happy life. We will forever rescue...

I too just found out the puppy we bought today is from a puppy mill. I can't believe it!!! Bought the puppy at American Breeders in Danbury, CT.
#33 Sep 12, 2013
Seems no one knows the difference between a puppy mill and a well run kennel.
People who breed dogs are inspected each year by AKC, USDA, and also a state inspector. The rules for breeders are very stringent.
You have no idea what it takes to be a breeder.
I know puppy mills exist but I can guarantee that Feldman's isn't one.

Lol at pauly. Get a life you fanatic.

I have a Feldman Goldendoodle who is beautiful and perfect in every way. She is a year and a half now.
#36 Jul 26, 2014
We purchased a golden retriever from him 13.5 years ago. Just gave family description and he chose the best dog for us and shipped her to Alaska. She came chipped, certificate of health & origin/ AKC registered. She is best dog we've ever had!
