Nowadays, finding a healthy puppies Golden Retriever is far harder than it used to be. Bad breeders and puppy mills operate without punishment thanks to the internet, and weeding through the disreputable ones is chore. Uptown Puppies exists to do one thing—bring together the best breeders in one place, and make it easy to connect those breeders with awesome families (like yours).
Puppy mills are sad places that treat dogs like breeding machines instead of living creatures. At mills, you can expect to find unhealthy, mistreated dogs that will run you thousands of extra dollars in veterinarian bills...and, more than likely, wind up dying at a young age. The majority of pet shop dogs, for example, come from mills.
