I think all dog auctions should be against the law and for those who hold them they should be put in prison not the ordinary type but one such as the dogs have a wire cage top and bottom out in the cold or heat, little or no food and filthy water to drink and see how long they survive.

They do not deserve any better treatment than the poor dogs that live that life until they die from lack of medical treatment or for some when a miracle happens and a rescue comes in and saves their lives. I have such a survivor and I am sure glad that she was rescued and given an opportunity to live as a dog should. She has had to learn what a puppy should be all the way up to an adult dog. What a joy she is to have in my life.

To think that someone knowingly left her in the puppymiller's environment then sold her because she couldn't produce any more puppies for the greed of them to sell for more money. Shame on you all of you for treating one of God's creatures this way.

If Raber and the puppy mill owners are such upstanding guys, why do they keep the business so hush-hush? If it is so "nice" why do they keep it out of the publics eyes...could they be hiding something? Could it be that mills are not what they have you believe? Have you ever seen some of the dogs that come out of these auctions...scared, sick, injured and mentally destroyed? Has anybody asked Raber or any of the mill owners what they do with the dogs that are no longer making them $$$$? Oh, they die, but how....definitely not humanely. Does ONE puppy mill have any genetic testing done on any of their breeding stock to ensure the healthiest puppies possible?...I think not, that would cut into their profits! USDA inspections...don't make me laugh....their guidelines are right out of the middle ages. I could go on and on....

What do you know about Raber? Is he Freeman Raber? I've had some bad experiences buying a puppy from someone who called himself a breeder and now I know that he is infact Freeman Raber, a puppy miller. What can you tell me about him?

If a breeder is USDA he is playing by the book. Stop the media lies and game all you phony non-profit rescues stealing donation money and playing God to see who gets the dog. No real USDA breeder is in those videos you show to con people out of money.

Also lets not forget the game vets play! I was a vet tech in NY and we call the WORM GAME. For 5 cents worth of meds they would get hundreds of dollars from people. All puppies are born with them in the wild the weak die Gods laws. The Vet are rich because of the worm game.
