Many of the puppies advertised online come from the cruel puppy trade. They are bred in poor conditions in puppy farms, far too young to be taken away from their mothers, and often endure long journeys before being sold. By the time they are in your arms, they could be sick or go on to have behavioural problems due to lack of socialisation.
