Angel 12 weeks



Angel is a Yorkie-Maltese mix and the newest addition to my family. Angel is so unique in appearance - she has the face of her Yorkie mom and the hair of her Maltese dad, with streaks of copper from her yorkie mom. She was 1 pound 6 oz. at 8 weeks old, and at 2 1/2 years, she is 4 pounds 12 oz. Her personality is definitely a combination of both parents - lovable and feisty! She is absolutely the love of my life!

Ever heard of Wizard of Claws in South Florida? It's a puppy mill disguised as a pet shop and is famous for selling high priced puppies - SICK puppies!
"Puppies -- seriously ill, some are even dying soon after being purchased from a popular pet operation in South Florida."
A four-month NBC 6 investigation traces a trail of puppy heartbreak and outraged owners. Should the dogs have been sold to the public in the first place?"
Please read the following article and then pass the word to all of your friends and for the love of animals, let's get this place shut down!

Stop the Madness - Please read!
Several people have written me concerning a web site where they are "deliberately" breeding mixed breeds. To deliberately breed mixed breeds, for big (or small) profit, is wrong and irresponsible. This particular site has taken money from people and never delivered the promised puppy. They are asking big money for "mutts" - $500 to over $1,000, and even $1,600!. They are releasing puppies at 8 weeks of age and the puppies are getting sick - hypoglycemia being the number one problem. Under no circumstances should a tiny breed puppy be released before it is 2 pounds or 12 weeks. Before purchasing a mixed breed, do your research and ask questions. Is this mixed breed the result of an "accidental breeding"? If not, look elsewhere. If you purchase a mixed breed from someone who is deliberately breeding, you are contributing to the already overpopulated dog world. The shelters are filled with mixed breeds looking for "forever homes". Do the right thing - do your research - ask questions - visit the shelters - and most of all - spay and neuter your pet. Regardless of how cute Angel is, she is a mutt, a mixed-breed, and most importantly, the result of an "accidental breeding". To pay hundreds of dollars for a yorkie/maltese is insane! Stop the madness - refuse to buy from back yard breeders, puppy mills, or pet shops!!! And just a note - pet shops who buy and sell puppies get the worst of the worse. Just because they say it's a pure bred, doesn't mean it is AKC standard. You could wind up with a 20 pound Maltese! DO YOUR RESEARCH!!!! I visited a pet warehouse (I can't even call it a pet "shop") in Richmond, VA - the puppies were crammed in cages, some with their little legs falling through the wire. They had NO toys to play with, they were not socialized at all - they had food thrown in their tiny crammed cages 2x day, and 15 puppies had to fight for their food (a good way to teach them "food aggression!"). I saw a pure bred Maltese that was only 4 months old and already over 10 pounds - obviously the result of a back yard breeder. It was the saddest thing I have ever seen. When I talked to the owner about my concerns, he said, "it's not my place to socialize the puppies - it's the people who buy them." Excuse me, Mr. Pet Warehouse Owner, it IS your responsibility to see that a prospective buyer gets a well-adjusted puppy! THIS is what reputable breeders do! It was obvious to me there was no concern for the puppies nor the buyer, only for the money they would bring - and big money I might add! I was even told "selling puppies puts food on my table." Again, please consider visiting the shelters for your mixed breed puppy where you just might find your forever puppy or dog - and stay away from pet shops who sell puppies and kittens!!!! If you buy a puppy over the internet, you are asking for trouble!!
For comments from someone who has seen first hand what goes on in puppy mills,
please read Oliver Twist's story on page 7

Don't be a victim of puppy mills! Read
If you have a mixed breed dog (other than a Yorkie-Maltese mix), add his/her picture to my "All Mixed Up" page.
