Happiness is pets in Chicago should be held libel for fraud. They have a fancy new website with a section called "Happiness is pets and puppy mills." Take a look at the site and see the cages, they are like aquariums.
They put the puppies in the aquariums with the plastic or wire bottoms so their little paws fall through all day and night. Nobody there to oversee them at night. What if they have to go out in the middle of the night? They just sit in their poop. And what about during the day? Has anyone EVER drove by a puppy store and seen puppies outside? Nope, they are stuck in the cages. I wonder if they find dead dogs in the morning after leaving them alone all night in the store. Sometimes puppies have seizures and all other kinds of things....they're puppies. They should be watched all day and night while they are in their puppy years. NO REPUTABLE BREEDER would even think of doing this to their puppies.
I want to see the parents of these great dogs happiness is pets. How come every time I call one of these stores and ask this question, they hang up on me? Do they teach them that? Why can't we see the parents of the highly bred dogs? What are you hiding hip? Oh wait, I forgot, you're hiding the puppy mills.
Here are some quotes from the fancy new website:
"A multitude of animal rights organizations have pushed this term on almost anyone who profits off the purposeful breeding of dogs, regardless of the care and conditions the dogs may be in. These groups will use images from one substandard kennel and label it as the industry standard. These images include emaciated, matted up, pathetic looking dogs packed in rusty cages surrounded by fly covered feces."
Soooo....hip....you don't use this breeder, Marty Gadient picture shown? You are LIARS, this is where my dog came from. She has stage four luxating patellas, her paws are black from licking and she cannot sit still. It will cost me $5000.00 or more to correct her knee caps from floating out every time she takes a step. "These groups will use images alright you liars, because the images are from YOUR BREEDERS."
"It is fundamentally impossible for “Puppy mill” dogs to yield quality puppies. Because Happiness Is Pets partners with quality, professional breeders we are confident to offer a cash-back warranty that is absolutely second to none."
These are NOT quality professional breeders, you are liars once again...they are puppy mills run by some of the most horrendous breeders known in the midwest. What does "fundamentally impossible" mean? Oh yeah, wait, it means if a few hundred die before we pick the ones we want for the store, who's gonna' know? How many dogs die before they pick the one that will sell? A cash back warranty for a puppy? What is that? Like a lamp or table? You think nothing of these dogs and treat them like they are a piece of furniture. You give "instant $1200.00 credit, no credit check required." You don't care who buys the puppies. You don't care these dogs may be abused. You don't care these dogs may go to people who will use them in dog fights. You don't care about anything but the money. Blood money in your pockets you made off of dogs living in hell.
Thoughtlessly labeling all professional breeders as “puppy mills” is tremendously prejudicial. The breeders that Happiness Is Pets partners with take exceptional care of their animals.
Cannot even comment on that last quote....pictures don't lie, but happiness is pets does.
Leroy & Gertrude Kruse - pictures below. Visit The Companion Animal Protection Society www.caps-web.org for the undercover investigations on Steve Kruse, their main breeder. Very disturbing breeders this place uses. Go to youtube and search "Levi Graber" one of happiness is pets breeders. There is a video on there of a dog eating another dog. Very disturbing and these are responsible breeders hip?
