2. According to The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, illness, disease, and little or no socialization with humans as well as other animals, are common characteristics of dogs from puppy mills. Female dogs are many times forced to breed at every chance available and when they can no longer produce puppies, they are often abandoned or killed. (
3. According to veterinarian, Dr. Lorie Huston, many puppy mill owners are not concerned about the genetic quality of the dogs and this causes many puppies to be more likely to develop genetic problems such as hip dysplasia and heart muscle disease. They can also have diseases such as canine distemper and intestinal parasites. (Hutson, L.)

Transition Statement:
Not only are puppy mills that produce many unhealthy and neglected puppies a problem, but as a result, many consumers unknowingly purchase these puppies from pet stores and the Internet.

B. The second part of the problem is: Consumers purchase puppies from pet stores or on the Internet without actually knowing the history behind this puppy.
1. According to the Humane Society of the United States and the Companion Animal Protection Society, approximately nine out of every ten puppies that are sold in pet stores come from puppy mills. The Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council states that pet stores sell approximately 300,000 to 400,000 puppies each year in the United States. (from If consumers would stop for a moment and think beyond only the cute, furry puppy and research where the puppy actually came from, the business of puppy mills would end.
2. Puppy mill owners might sell their puppies over the Internet, which is ideal because it saves them money with no pet store price markup. If the new owners can’t pick the puppy up at the kennel, they can have the puppy flown to them. The individuals who purchase a puppy this route will not have the opportunity to see the conditions the puppy was born into, nor will they know the risk the puppy has to having hereditary problems due to the lack of care that has gone into the breeding the of the dogs. (Bradley, C.)

Transition Statement: Puppy Mills are a major problem that cannot be ignored. Because dogs and puppies are neglected and individuals continue to purchase puppies from pet stores or the Internet, a solution is desperately needed.
C. The solution that I propose is: I propose that stricter laws regulating puppy mills be enforced both at the federal and state level and that individuals stop purchasing puppies from pet stores but instead look to other alternatives such as animal shelters.
1. Stricter laws protecting dogs and puppies in puppy mills will help...
