Very interesting. The states that are experiencing the highest rates of population growth are also the states with the highest concentration of dog auctions and puppy mills. As for the statement that the Amish "generally eschew modern conveniences," readers might be interested to know that the kingpin of the Ohio Amish "commercial" breeders has a cell phone, internet access and a Facebook page!

I am responding as a life long volunteer with the SPCA, having participated in education, intervention and every level of volunteer work. Having personally observed and communicated with the Amish breeders, I can say fairly that this poster is misinformed. The Amish are a friendly but subdued people in their expression. They tend to get picked on about selling the dogs. But they have the most natural, healthy facilities with puppies and people interacting from birth, disease free, clean, and spacious. I would love to be a dog living in an Amish community. To the poster I would advise to research the real criminals who cant be picked on due to their truly evil stealth and secretiveness. We investigate real trashy puppy mills often and they are a far cry from what the Amish have going. Thats just the truth.

Robert, you need to get out from under that rock you're living under! Do a Google search of "amish puppy mills" and you will find a mountain of credible evidence - includes video - proving your observations wrong and just plain ignorant. You can't fool those of us who have personally observed and communicated with Amish breeders in Ohio, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Missouri, Oklahoma, Indiana, Virginia and Kentucky. It's all about money to these puppy mill breeders and to H**l with the animals! You say you would love to be a dog living in an Amish community? Well then, contact the kingpin of the Amish commercial breeders living in Holmes county, OH. But first I would recommend you read his latest USDA Inspection report. His kennel is a far cry from that "natural, healthy facility" you so lovingly described in your far-fethched post.

Your a lying swizzling-sniveling-sniffling masquerader. Why are there so many Amish haters from the dog selling industry? Are you a lobbyist for the pet industry? Is ole'Miller-Haffer-Hunchbacker really taking a bite out of the profits of Petco, Petsmart, Nextdaypets, etc?

The pet selling industries hate it that a few Amish breeders can sell healthy dogs at lower the cost than you'd find in any pet store. The pet industries have been selling lies of dogicide, mistreatment, cruelty by using it's "anti-dog breeder" organizations and operatives.
