Dogs are often kept in cages, which may be stacked from floor to ceiling with multiple animals living in each one. The cages in which these dogs are kept generally have wire flooring, which allows the dog's waste to slick through the a collection tray underneath. This allows the operators of the puppy mills to save time by never walking the dogs or giving them the necessary space to naturally eliminate. In addition to being employed for deplorable purposes, these cages can also injure the dogs' legs and paws, and the conditions that they promote lead to disease. Mill dogs may live exclusively outside, where they are exposed to environmental conditions which harm them, or conversely live entirely indoors in cages.
There are usually anywhere from 200-300 females and only 50 male dogs at puppy mills. Inbred animals with deformities and congenital disorders are a regular occurrence at puppy mills, but are never cured. Puppies, mothers & fathers are all kept in tiny cages, constantly walking around on wire cages & their own faeces, some never seeing sunlight. What about those animals who break free? They’re met by electric barb wired fences, reinforced with a strong electric current.
The puppies are sold wholesale to the pet industry after they are born into filth from unhealthy mothers who have been born into puppy mills themselves. Often bred with diseases and many other disabilities, they spend their whole lives in wire cages often losing limbs and living amongst their own feces with only one purpose; to breed. These cruel facilities have been

While it may be cute for a 5 pound tiny dog to put his paws on your leg when you come home from school, it is allowing a dominant behavior. If you allow this little dog to be your pack leader they will developed many behavior issues, such as jealousy, aggression with other dogs and sometimes with humans, and will become undeniably suspicious of people except for their owner. When strangers are present, they will begin to follow their owner's every move, keeping as close as possible. A Chihuahua who is pack leader of their humans may snap at children. This breed is generally not recommended for children, not because they are not good with them, but because most people treat the Chihuahua differently than they would a large dog, causing them to become untrustworthy.

Adopt, Save a Life A Puppy Mill is a private home or farm where dogs are bred repeatedly until their poor bodies can no longer take the exhausting toll and are put to sleep when they can't possibly live through another litter of puppies. Most of those cute puppies you see at a pet store come from one of these horrible places. Puppy mill breeders do not care about the health of their dogs, the puppies are just a cash crop to them. If more people were educated, and new the facts about puppy mills, and buying from a pet store, maybe we could change the awful statistics together. The solution to this problem is adopting from a shelter or rescue.
Lennie unintentionally kills the puppy: “You ain’t so little as mice. I didn’t bounce hard” Lennie kills the puppy accidently, as he has killed many mice before because of his inability to recognise his own strength.

Like the innocent animal, Lennie is unaware of the vicious, predatory nature that surrounds him, which ultimately leads to his demise.
