Time for another Nero fact Friday! In order to produce the most amount of dogs, breeders often refuse to remove medically compromised dogs from their breeding stock. This results in generations of dogs with hereditary defects. When these puppies are sold at pet stores, they often die at very young ages due to this.

It’s time for another #nerofactfriday. While it’s widely understood by many that puppies are mistreated inside of puppy mills, mother dogs are often treated worse. Unlike their offspring, they have little to no chance of leaving the mill. The mothers are often kept in cages or chained to the floor. They have litter after litter with no rest between to maximize profits. Once they can no longer breed, they are deemed useless. They may be drowned, shot, or thrown out and left to die because they can no longer produce puppies. They are just one part of a massive and inhumane system built out of greed that puts profit over the health and well-being of the mother dogs they use.

It’s time for a new #nerofactfriday! Puppy mills were created after World War II and promoted as a fail proof business by the USDA. Today, there are over 10,000 mills in the US, with most located in the Midwest. 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 #rottielove #rottie #rottweilersofinstagram #rottweiler #rottweilerofficial #rottweilerfan #rottieboynero #rottiegram #rottieworld #rottweilerland #rottweilerpuppy #rottweilerdog #rotty #rott #rottiecenter

For this #nerofactfriday, we’re going to talk about the transportation of dogs from puppy mills to pet stores. In 2016, over 50 puppies died when the driver of a transport vehicle failed to stop the truck from overheating. There are little to no regulations regarding the care of puppies in their transportation. This means that they will often be put in the back of a truck with little food, water, or veterinary care. They are probably never let out of their crates, even though these trucks will travel halfway across the US. Many, due to weak immune systems and improper care, die before they reach the store. Even after reaching a pet store, if they are not healthy enough to be sold they may be taken back to the mill. This is one of the many reasons why you should never buy a dog from a pet store, because it only means that more dogs will suffer this horrendous journey.

This week’s (day late😅) puppy mill fact is that many people unknowingly perpetuate the system. When some see dogs in pet store windows, they often thing they are saving them by purchasing them. In reality, they are giving more money to the mills where more animals are produced. In order to stop puppy mills, people need to stop buying dogs from pet stores. The best way to end puppy mills is to stop the demand, which will stop the supply, as mills are all about money.

This weeks puppy mill fact is about one of the major aftereffects of life in a mill. Dogs kept in mills can develop extreme fears and phobias and often show difficulty in coping with normal existence. There is scientific evidence that dogs receive psychological scars from life in a puppy farm. Even if the dogs are freed, their mental state is altered for the rest of their lives, making it very difficult for them to live ordinary lives.

It’s #nerofactfriday! This weeks fact about puppy mills is that about 90% of dogs bred in puppy mills are sold in pet stores. Pet stores are by far the biggest sale outlets for the puppy farms and are essential for keeping them running. If you are unsure of where a dog being sold at a pet store was bred, ask the store. If they can’t provide any information about the puppy, it is most likely from a puppy mill. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them in the comments! 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 #rottielove #rottie #rottweilersofinstagram #rottweiler #rottweilerofficial #rottweilerfan #rottieboynero #rottiegram #rottieworld #rottweilerland #rottweilerpuppy #rottweilerdog #rotty #rott #rottiecenter

Hello furriends!

On every Friday ( #nerofactfriday), we’re going to post a fact about puppy mills, the pet shop industry, the puppy pipeline, etc. in order to educate and spread awareness about these issues that are affecting dogs and puppies across the United States and the world. 🐾 For all of you who don’t know, puppy mills are defined as “establishment(s) that breed puppies for sale, typically on an intensive basis and in conditions regarded as inhumane”. In reality, they are cruel breeding facilities where profit is placed above the well being of the dogs they are supposed to care for. 🐾 This is an issue that is especially important to us, which is why it is we’ve chosen to use the tools we’ve been given to educate, inform, and spread awareness. 🐾 Don’t worry though- there will still be daily cute pictures of Nero! 🐾 Thank you all again for supporting this account and allowing us to bring this issue to light. If you have any questions, feel free to DM us or comment down below!! 🐾 ❤️ Nero and family 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 #rottielove #rottie #rottweilersofinstagram #rottweiler #rottweilerofficial #rottweilerfan #rottieboynero #rottiegram #rottieworld #rottweilerland #rottweilerpuppy #rottweilerdog #rotty #rott #rottiecenter
